The construction of Shimabara castle started in 1618 and compleeted in 1625. It took 7 years to build the castle. It was a magnificient castle which had a five storied castle tower with 16 large and small turrets. The stone walls extended for 3900 meters. It was too magnificient for a feudal lord with revenues of only 40,000koku. The feudal lord imposed heavy tax on the peasants, which caused Shimabara Rebellion.
The castle was reconstructed in 1964 and is used as History museum.
