  • It is possible to climb from dazaifu government office in about 40 minutes. It is widely overlooking Dazaifu, Chikushino and Fukuoka. It is known for the battle of shimazu army and Otomo army in the sengoku period. The Otomo army's Takahashi Shaunji was annihilated, but he escaped to a temple in Dazaifu to tell the truth and survived.

  • After seeing the ruins of Ono Castle, I stopped by this place. It is not possible to imagine that the castle of this place which is famous for the sengoku age lover, and honmaru is smaller than I thought, and it greets the horde of Shimazu army in such a castle, and it fought well. From the main maru ruins, we could see the ruins of the Dazaifu Government Office and the water castle.
