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.
