  • 20645views

Hirado Castle offers a commanding view of Hirado Port, Hirado Strait and the ancient forest of Kurokojima Island.

While the first castle was built in 1599, it was burned down just over a decade later by the ruling Matsura Clan who owned it.
It was then rebuilt in 1718 by the Matsura Clan and used until the Meiji Restoration Period when most of Japan's castles were demolished.

Its museum contains many valuable relics dating back to the Hirado’s feudal past.
