Japan 2019: Fukuoka Caste Ruins (Maizuru Park)

First Time in Japan: Northern Kyushu Itinerary, Expenses and Travel Tips (From Hakata in Fukuoka)

Or should I just say white cherry blossoms viewing?

On this site once stood the largest castle in Kyushu but all that's left are ruins and trees. On a full bloom day, it will be much better to view cherry blossoms on this area rather than the nearby Ohori Park because the trees are larger.

This is a different variation of cherry blossoms - they're called Weeping Cherry tree 'cause they look a lot like Weeping Willow. 

Once saw a weeping tree in the Garden of Morning Calm in South Korea link: here.

The branches were within reach and I was very careful and made sure I only touched the branch and not the flowers while taking selfies with it. 

Sana oil hindi oily ahahhahaha!

It must be the weather talaga. Don't remember having that clear skin back then.. don't even have it now. AHAHAHA!

"cascades of sakura flowers"

As you'd notice, the branches of these trees grow drooping downward which make it looks like. It looks "sad" whenever it has no leaves nor flowers but on a peak season, it looks grander than the rest of the trees. 

The next two pictures are the ruins. I couldn't grasp how big this castle used to be but it was also interesting to walk around these walls.

It looks as if we've traveled far from the buildings but I think, this was only twenty minutes away from Hakata. 

For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.
