Amakusa - Tomioka Castle tower reconstruction Shape  Diamond Wk 9
Tomioka Castle (富岡城 Tomioka-jō?) is a Japanese castle located in Kyūshū. During the 16th century, it was the castle of Terasawa Katataka, a daimyo who played a critical part in repressing the Shimabara Rebellion.
It is located on one of the Amakusa Islands of which five are connected to Kyushu and each other by 5 Bridges. They are part of Kumamoto Pref.
Amakusa Islands, Japanese Amakusa-shotō, archipelago off western Kyushu, Japan, in the Amakusa Sea. Administered by Kumamoto ken (prefecture), it includes about 100 islands, the largest of which are Kami (“Upper”) Island and Shimo (“Lower”) Island. There is little farming because of the rough, mountainous terrain, and there are few industries, but forestry, orange cultivation, and offshore fishing are actively pursued.

Thank you Christiane.
Yes I thought so. The ruined Castle is being fully restored as an important historical building, I learned this from the Curator of the Castle Museum while there with my friend.
