It is a wonderful castle ruins to understand the defensive power of the iron wall even now.
キリシタン大名で有名な大友宗麟が築いた城です。大友宗麟の頃は丹生島城と呼ばれていて、その当時は丹生島 (にゅうじま)と言う臼杵湾に浮かぶ島でした。 臼杵川河口の島であった丹生島城は周囲を海に囲まれ、干潮時に西側に陸地が現れる天然の要害です。島全体を城郭化し、ポルトガルから入手した「国崩し」と呼ばれた大砲「フランキ砲」を設置し、九州で最強の島津氏に囲まれてしまった際も持ちこたえた堅城です。 現在、... more »This castle was built by Otomo Munenori, famous for the Christian Daimyo.

The Tanujima Castle, an island at the mouth of the Usuki River, is surrounded by the sea, and it is a natural hazard that land appears on the west side at low tide. It is a stronghold that survived even when the entire island was castleized, and the cannon "Franci gun" which was called "National Ruin" obtained from Portugal was installed, and it was surrounded by Mr. Shimazu of the strongest in Kyushu. At present, the surroundings are reclaimed, and it is not a scenery of the castle surrounded by the sea, but the atmosphere which was an island remains, and there is a honmaru and two circles on the cliff. It is said that there used to be a three-fold tower and a tower, but it has been demolished, leaving the two-round tatami tower and the Utoraguchi gate side tower of Honmaru. The rest is about ishigaki, i can see some empty moat. There are not so many remains as the remains of the castle, but there are also Inaba Shrine, Usuki Gokoku Shrine, Utora Inari Shrine, Otomo Munenori Monument, And Franchi Gun, etc., so it was quite fun to see.
