Chapter Summary

This section contains the postscript of this book. The book describes the Yayoi settlement at Yoshinogari, but what the author remembers as an archaeological site with scattered examples of reconstructed buildings has now expanded to encompass dozens of wooden huts, storehouses, watchtowers and palisades spread over a large area. It also points out a colourful float portraying Takahashi Joun, the general who heroically defended Iwaya Castle in 1586, which he remembers seeing in the bullet train foyer of Hakata Station each time he passed by. The book further mentions that the keep of Saga Castle had become the largest reconstructed wooden castle building in Japan when it was completed in 2004. This has now been surpassed by the new Honmaru Palace next to the keep of Kumamoto Castle, which opened in April 2008.
