Early defensive structures date back to early 14th century by Utsunomiya Toyofusa. In 1888 deterioration of the castle keep (天守, tenshu) led to its demolition, but it was accurately re-constructed in 2004.

  • Very nice feeling inside. The smell, the silence. Loved the views. The explanations and models are very nice. 500¥ for adults, 800¥ combined with the Garyu villa. Worth the walk there.
  • One of the main attractions in Ozu, but not something you should feel too bad about missing out. The main tower is a recent reconstruction, and while they took care to use old techniques while doing so, it's not particularly remarquable compared to similar castles. The viewpoint offered on the city from the top of the tower is nice if you don't mind the steep stairs.
