Ulsan Japanese Castle (Hakseong Park)

A Japanese Fortress built by Kato Kiyomasa in the 16th century located in downtown Ulsan, Korea’s representative industrial complex!

Hello, Ulsan Japanese Fortress (Hakseong Won) in downtown Ulsan is a Japanese castle where fierce battles were fought between the Japanese army led by Kato Kiyomasa and the Joseon Ming Dynasty allied forces in 1597 and 1598. During the Japanese invasion of Korea in 1592, many dwarf castles were built in the southern coastal belt, and among them, the dwarf castle was built at the end of the east coast near Busan.

It was built on a low mountain about 50m above sea level with a wall length of 1,300m and a height of 10-15m, with the main floor at the top of the dwarf castle and the Ninomaru and Samnomaru to the northwest. Most of the area around the Ulsan Japanese Fortress, where you can see the Taehwa River that runs through downtown Ulsan, has been transformed into a residential area due to development, but the remains of the fortress, such as Nobori Ishigaki and Seonji, remain relatively well. It is a dwarf castle that many 16th century dwarf star researchers visit in Japan.

Ulsan Japanese Fortress is currently used as an exercise or rest area for Ulsan citizens
