Visited Nakatsu Castle on a free day from our Business stay in Nakatsu City. Interesting history and low cost entrance fee. Nice to sample some true Japanese culture during our busy schedule.

I had had an interest in the castle as it was originally founded by Josui Kuroda who was advisor to Hideyoshi Toyotomi that established nation-wide rule in 1590. Kuroda remains in history as one of the most astute advisors of Japan. What remains today are only the stone foundations and ruins. The base stone foundation built by Kuroda is the oldest existing in Kyuushuu. Hosokawa who became the next resident of Nakatsu Castle expanded the castle in the early 17th century. You can see the stone foundation that was added later by Hosokawa. The magnificent keep was built in 1964 but I understand that it may not be a true replica of the original. The keep is now a museum displaying objects from the Okudaira family who were the feudal lords of Nakatsu till the Meiji Restoration. We went up the keep to the top floor to command a good view from the top. If you are interested in the Ooita area please browse the article on my homepage Rediscovering Japan (Ooita).

Castle is charming. Very serene around the castle. Nice short visit over my stay at Beppu. The shrine beside it was nice and serene too. Lots of parking at the shrine.

We was able visit with the manager Ms Uchikawa and explain that we were there looking for history of my wife's family. She was very helpful, looking through the records and she let me put on the helmet (replica) and war coat of the first great Okudaira leader Nobasa. Nakatsu will arrange for a free tour guide whom explained the history which was fascinating. I enjoyed it very much and everyone was so friendly and helpful. Thank you Nakatsu!!

The castle was around 15 minutes of way away from the Nakatsu Station. And the entrance fee was 400 yen per adult. Beside the castle was the Nakatsu river. Therefore, the top of the castle overlooked great view of the river. The castle was 5-story. From afar, it looked quite magnificent. Around the castle there were somehow several Japanese shrines.
