When first time I come to Fukuoka Castle I'm so suprised because I can not find the castle.. huh... what happened? And after that, I search in internet and find this story: 

Fukuoka Castle used to be one of the largest castles in Kyushu, but was torn down after the Meiji Restoration because it was viewed as a symbol of an undesirable feudal past.
