Built by Kitsuki Yorinao in 1394, Kitsuki Castle is a strategically-placed fort utilizing the natural elements of the surrounding sea and the bluff on an elevated ground.
Inside the castle today is the historical museum displaying various relics including the armor worn by the domain lord and the Bungo plum vase presented to the Tokugawa shogunate among others.
Atop the Tenshukaku main tower provides a stunning panoramic view of the city of Kitsuki and Morie Bay.
