KUMAMOTO CASTLE

九州旅行はずっと昔のような感じだけど。。なかなか整理する時間がなくて。。

日本三名所の一つ:熊本城です。

Kumamoto Castle was constructed by the Kato Clan in 1607. Half a century later, it was handed over to the Hosokawa Clan, which ruled the surrounding fief from there for over 200 years until the end of the feudal age.

Unfortunately in 1877, Kumamoto Castle became the site of Japan's last civil war, when an army of former samurai under Saigo Takamori unsuccessfully rose against the new Meiji government. Large parts of the castle were destroyed in that civil war..

Such a pity!!

Most of the present castle buildings, including the large and small castle towers, are reconstructions, dating from the 1960s. The interior of the castle towers is a modern museum.     
    
                       Kumamoto, a vibrant and energetic city

    
               Ok, those who want to visit the castle, follow me
                                                 It's FREE!!!!

   
 Hmmm..it was a bit tiresome to climb these stone steps in such a strong heat..

    
        Did you notice that these 2 stone walls were built in different era?
                ここの石壁は違う時代に造られたようです。

     
    かなり戦争でやられたので残っている建物の大部分は1960年代に建てられました。

      この写真は戦争前の熊本城です。。
       This is an old photo of Kumamoto Castle before the civil war..

         

     
                  この部分だけはオリジナルです
                       Only this small dungeon is the original..

日本のお城ってよく火事などでやられるんですね!木造だからかな。。ヨーロッパのお城は石で造られる場合が多いから大体残っているけど。。もったいないよね!三匹の子豚の話を思い出してしまいますね!
