Akashi Castle is a Japanese castle in Akashi, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan.This castle was constructed by Ogasawara Tadazane as his own castle from 1617 to 1619 to watch over the western lords, by the order of Tokugawa Hidetada, on Mount Akamatsu. It is known Miyamoto Musashi helped too as he was invited by Ogasawara Tadanao as a "Construction Supervisor". The castle was built in one year, which was a relatively short amount of time. This was done so quickly because as a result of a 1615 law mandating one castle per clan, many castles were dismantled and parts of some were used to construct Akashi Castle.The castle was built in Akashi, which was an important strategic point between Osaka and western Japan, where many major tozama daimyo had their feudal estates. Akashi Castle was expected to play the role of a key staging point to stop a hypothetical invasion of Osaka.Akashi castle underwent major repairs in 1739, and was demolished by the Meiji Government in 1874.Cultural PropertyIn Akashi Castle, there are two Important Cultural Properties selected by Japanese government: Hitsujisaru YaguraTatsumi YaguraThese two yagura, or towers, are the castle's only remaining buildings.AccessSanyo Akashi Station of Sanyo Electric RailwayAkashi Station of JR Kobe LineWork out when and for how long to visit Ruins of Akashi Castle and other Akashi attractions using our handy Akashi trip itinerary maker.

お城跡と言っても天守は無く、櫓がメイン。中には資料があり、主に阪神大震災に伴うダメージとその修復作業について。良く見ると所々に補強が施されており、涙ぐましい努力の跡が見える。ボランティアの説明員の方々も情熱的で良いと思う。 明石駅方面から見る、塀、石垣と2つの櫓は素晴らしいと思う。それとは対象的に、中に入ると、やや期待外れ。Even if your Castle Tower, main turret. Information in the article, mainly due to the great Hanshin earthquake damage and its repair work. Look better decorated reinforcement in some places, straddling marks are visible. Our volunteer staff is passionate and good think. I think, great wall, stone wall and two watchtowers seen from Akashi Station. And into an object, and it is somewhat disappointing.show original
