I got myself up early this morning and drove to Ōnojō in Dazaifu, Fukuoka Prefecture. It was about a 50km round trip & the whole thing just took a few hours. Ōnojō is a very interesting castle so please check out the vid below. You could also check out the Ōno castle profile page .

Looks like a very fascinating area. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I prefer these ruins over the reconstructions. There is something… I don’t really know the word to use here… awe-inspiring, maybe, about knowing that something as big as a castle once stood here but now the area has been mostly reclaimed by nature, yet still being able to see hints of the former greatness. Maybe it is that my imagination can construct a much more impressive building than the actual thing, or maybe it is knowing that a reconstruction is when we get down to it fake. I don’t know. But I also love nature and so the peace and quiet of the area (ruins are rarely tourist attractions, it seems) always attracts me more. Anyways… That paragraph probably doesn’t make any sense at all, so move along :)

The Mizuki is actually pretty easy to miss on the ground and much easier to see from a high vantage point. I wonder if you didn’t pass through it. From Dazaifu station you could’ve made your way there on foot but that would’ve been pretty tough going, not to mention time consuming.

You’ve just made me realize that what people can get out of the video can vary from person to person. I’d like to say “I couldn’t see the forest for the trees” but that would be mixing my metaphors I think.
