This is a vlog of various historical sites in Fukuoka Prefecture.
The first one is Suijo, a castle built in ancient times. It is 1.2 km long, 80 m wide, 10 m high, and consists of earthen mounds and a moat filled with water inside and out. For those who do not like history, “What’s so interesting? But I found myself looking at the water castle for an hour (laugh).
Next was the Dazaifu Government Office Ruins. This is the site where the government office of Dazaifu, a diplomatic and defense base in Kyushu, was located. To be frank, it is just a square with nothing special about it, and the museum attached to it is also small, so it was difficult to enjoy for a long time.
The next stop was the Kyushu National Museum. It is the fourth national museum after Tokyo, Nara, and Kyoto, and is not an art museum but a history museum. The museum is located behind Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, which is crowded with tourists, but there were not many people there. It’s interesting, and I urge you to go!
Finally, we went over the mountains to the Chikuho Coalfield area. The view from the railroad was spectacular, and I was soaked in sentimentality. It was a great way to end the trip!
