This caste was on the top of the hill. When I stood at the entrance of the main tower, it was towering literally in front of me. This castle was built in 1417 originally. It was destroyed after the Meiji Restoration by the order of the government unfortunately.

The new government didn't want to preserve the physical plant for the battle because this castle was in danger of being used by the old regime. The tower in the photo was rebuilt in 1960.
