The warriors are coming to Kokura Castle! An event where you can learn and play history in a fun way.

The Kitakyushu Kokura Castle Festival is an annual autumn festival at Kokura Castle. The festival has been held every year since 1959, when the Kokura Castle Keep was rebuilt after being destroyed by fire.
