Imabari Castle, Imabari

(3.9/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Step back in time and explore the early 17th-century atmosphere at Imabari Castle, one of the three well-known "castles on the sea." Though destroyed by order of the Meiji rulers, the edifice underwent reconstruction in 1980. Observe the citadel's ingenious seawater moat, which can control the water level through use of the tides and a series of sluice gates. As you enter, note the unusual main gate, featuring iron plating and turrets. Climb to the top of the castle for views of the surrounding complex, moat, and cityscape and port beyond.

  • Unusual Castle was surrounded by a moat of water. Have shimanami Kaido seem much closer. The view is good. He did not get by with no experience writing compared to nokyo-Sho, Hall and shrine Office,. Visiting the shrine here and there, but never like this. How to write the answer in young or not was wondering. You will not receive from the shrine of nokyo-sho?
