Tsurumaru Castle – Beautiful Lotus Flowers in July –

This post is also available in: ja日本語

Shimadzu clan, a ruler of Satsuma Domain, ruled Southern Kyushu area at this castle. The castle was used until Edo period. Reimeikan Museum is built inside the castle now. Cherry blossoms are beautiful in Spring and lotus flowers in moats are beautiful in July.

Tsurumaru Castle

Satsuma Domain’s politics was conducted in this castle. The castle was built in 1604, begginning of Edo period. Only stone walls and water moas have remained.
