OMURA CASTLE (KUSHIMA CASTLE RUINS)

Omura Park is found in the town of Omura in Nagasaki Prefecture. The park itself was built over the dried moat of the Kushima Castle, and is filled with over 300 cherry blossoms making it a beautiful location in spring. It has in face been selected as one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. You can also find the ruins of Kusima Castle which was built in 1599 under the orders of Yoshiaki Omura, the lord of the Omura domain. The raised ruins of the foundations of the castle now contain the Omura Shrine. Some original stone walls are also still standing and represent the sloped design for the time, made that way to prevent ninjas from entering. The lookout tower you can find in the park was reconstructed in 1992 and is open to the public.
