See Japan's castles the easy way

I found myself driving through Ogi City (小城市) in Saga Prefecture on the weekend. It sounds like I was there by accident, and actually I was. I had been aware of Ogi Domain for some time, but without any actual trace of the former Jin’ya‘s structures, I’d just always put it off. Until now, of course.
Today, all there is to be found at the site of the former domain headquarters is large and very green park. Dotted around the park several shrines can be found. The largest shrine is the Okayama Jinja, and it was there that I spied a particularly old-looking gate bearing the heraldic crest (Kamon – 家紋) of the Ogi branch of the Nabeshima clan.
