Kyushu Travel Guide

Karatsu Castle

 

Karatsu Castle is called Dancing Crane Castle

 

Karatsu Castle was built in 1608. This castle is located facing the sea and is situated

in the northern part of Karatsu City.

 

It resembles the figure of a bird with its wings spread wide as there is a pine grove extending

left to right and because its donjon is thought to look like the head of a crane.

 

In spring, the 500 cherry trees and the Wisteria flowers in Karatsu, designated a product of nature by

the city, are in full bloom.
