Saga-city in Kyushu is the seat of the Saga-prefectural government. It faces the Ariake

Sea on the south and is home to Saga Airport. In the center of the city is the Saga

Castle History Museum, which also serves as the city’s symbol. The castle itself is

no longer standing, but the main keep has been reconstructed, resulting in one of the largest

wooden structures in Japan. Saga is also known as the place where it has made a great

contribution to the Japanese Industrial Revolution.
