Remains of Hara Castle

Hara Castle was a fortress, which once existed between the 15th and 17th centuries in the Shimabara region, Nagasaki Prefecture. It was standing on a hill, overlooking Ariake Sea (refer to #547).

The location of the remains is known as the main setting of the Shimabara Rebellion. So, it is a factor of "Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region", a UNESCO World Heritage Site newly listed in 2018.
