Senge Quarry Site

Japan Heritage
The quarries were operated by the Kato daimyos of the Higo domain and Kumamoto Castle, to produce stone for the rebuilding of Osaka Castle. There are stone pieces engraved with the Kato family crest, a pair of concentric circles (snake eye). A sword and other items passed down from the Kato clan are kept in a building that was the village headman’s home at the time.
