About Kokura Castle

Kokura Castle (小倉城) was built by Hosokawa Tadaoki in 1602. It was the property of the Ogasawara clan (from Harima) between 1632 and 1860. The castle was burnt down in 1865 in the war between the Kokura and Choshu clans. The Castle was rebuilt in 1959 and was fully restored in 1990.
