That is a park near Fukui station now. The local person said he would like to rebuild the castle tower someday. That is a good place to walk.

It is a big shame that rather than preserve this historical castle site better, for history and tourism of Fukui, the decision was made to fill the site with office buildings. Still, for what there is now, it is interesting to walk around the moat...More

Part of the wall and bridge across the moat is still closed due to preservation work, with a section of the moat drained. Unclear when it will be finished. Though the castle is sadly gone, it is worth a walk around the moat that surrounds...More

We visited during the sakura bloom, beautiful along the walls of the inner moat. A well is being enhanced and a castle gate is being reconstructed, to be completed by early 2018. The castle itself burned down over 400 years ago.

A section of the wall continues to be under reconstruction/preservation work. A sign says it is due to finish in March 2017. Much of the moat has now been refilled with water, though. It is interesting to go up the wall, and worth a walk...More
