New Fukuoka City Official “Castle Stamps” On Sale Now

Contents

①Castle Stamps

In recent years a new craze has emerged among castle enthusiasts: a memorial stamp to take home as a souvenir of your visit to a given castle. As Fukuoka Castle itself has been receiving more and more inquiries about memorial castle stamps, they have decided to launch the sale of their own Fukuoka Castle memorial stamps to help spread the word about the wonders of Fukuoka Castle! 

②Design

The Fukuoka City official memorial castle stamp design features Fukuoka Castle founder and first daimyo of the Kuroda Clan Kuroda Nagamasa’s beloved “black-lacquered peach-shaped helmet with side decorations in the shape of large water buffalo horns” and Kuroda Nagamasa’s own handwritten official seal (used as the military commander’s signature) from the Fukuoka City Museum Kuroda Clan historical collection.
