Fukuoka Castle is situated in Fukuoka Prefecture, which is on Kyushu islet, Japan. Constructed in 17th century by Nagamasa Kuroda, the primary daimyo or feudal lord of Chikuzen, Fukuoka Castle now exists in the splendor of its ruins. The only assertion to the former majesty of Fukuoka Castle comes in the appearance of a solitary Tamon Turret and Otemon gate. In ruins or not, Fukuoka Castle provides an awe-inspiringly stunning view of the conurbation. It is said that the fort had over 47 yagura - which are storerooms used to store armaments and food.
