Free place to spend <1 hour. There is an information office you can go to and get an English guide to the castle. It's a nice walk with an excellent view of the city once you get to the ruins of the tower. Essentially a park with the stone wall ruins throughout. It is maybe 4 metro stops from Hakata... More

...and it was tiring for the reason that we set foot on the castle base. Anyhow, even if we felt disappointed after going up a lot of times, we appreciated how Fukuoka looks like from that perspective.

As other reviewers mention, this is mostly the ruins, but the walks are beautiful, the highest observation area offers great views of the area and it's all easy walking paths. A great place to run, unwind, let kids run around to burn off energy and enjoy the multitudes of birds.

The clue to this place is in the name: castle ruins. This is an extensive area with some walls set in a pretty park. There are a few explanatory boards in Japanese and English. Don't expect to see a Japanese castle here; with the exception of one small tower, it is all castle remains. Nevertheless a pleasant, but uneven and... More

Go only if you've never been on the grounds of a castle in Japan. You're not going to see anything else except for walls of the ruins of a castle. Only good if you're in need of a running path.

Not much of the castle remains are there. No tourist shops...which was nice. Very, very small café for a cold drink and snack.

When most country population were hunting in the forest with thatched roofs for homes those living in 3rd largest City in Japan were building / living castles! Very historical site! Feel the place, imagine the life at that time! There were 200 feudal families in Japan which translates to about 200 castles - there are only 12 existing to date... More
