Cherry Blossom Season at Fukuoka Castle Ruins

These are the ruins of a castle build by the first lord of the Fukuoka domain, Kuroda Nagamasa, over a space of seven years, starting in 1601. The castle was formed by the keep, the innermost compound and a second and a third compound, and 47 guard towers. Of these towers, the Tamon Turret, Kinen (prayer) Turret and Shiomi Turret can still be seen today. It was named Fukuoka Castle after some land connected with the Kuroda clan, Bizen-no-Kuni-Fukuoka (in the vicinity of present-day Setouchi City, Okayama Prefecture). The ruins were designated as a national historic site in 1957.

    Yep it is that time of the year again for cherry blossom. I love your pictures. I usually go to San Francisco Japan Town to celebrate the cherry blossom festival.
