Fukuoka Castle was built around 1600 and was once the largest such castle in Kyushu, consisting of over 47,000 square meters (over 500,000 square feet) of land. It was abandoned in 1871 after the han system was scrapped and the castle's buildings were relocated or torn down. It was declared a national historic site in 1957.
