Katsuren Castle Remains

Katsuren Castle Remains is the “Teikaku-shiki” style castle that places four flat terrains in a staircase pattern. The castle wall was built utilizing a natural landscape and heaped up stone wall to the edge of steep cliff. Plenty of Japanese old tiles have been unearthed, and also carve rocks and dig pillar holes have been found.
The fact that tile-roofed buildings, which were uncommon at that time, were built corroborates prosperity of the castle.
