This is the castle which has over 400 years of history. The height of the stone wall is over 60 meters and this is the tallest wall in Japan.
The greatest feature is the beauty of a curved line. The castle has been restaurated and renovated by Ikoma Kazumasa in 1597, but has been dismantled due to an imperial decree.
