Takezaki Castle ruins
From the observatory point of Takezaki Castle Ruins Lookout, one can gaze down upon
workings of nature such as this. This is the site where a castle was originally built 600
years ago in the Nanboku-cho Period and a vantage point which offers spectacular views,
including the mountains of Unzen and Aso when the weather is fine. Enjoy the magnificent
views of Ariake while soaking up the romantic historical atmosphere.
Ariake Sea has a tidal range of approximately 6 meters. The notable transformation of the water’s
surface into a mud flat as the tide recedes is a scene unique to Ariake Sea.
