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.

  • The castle of tōdō Takatora 水堀 beautiful, beautiful stone walls, a beautiful Tower, a beautiful castle, cool name. Slippers, Crocs were prepared to go up to the Castle. Castle outside shooting is forbidden so caution is required. Armor will often display. I think I felt reinforced concrete tower is disappointing but I enhanced exhibits and balance out the Castle. We could park free of charge parking was so bike ride.

  • Mizuki's masterpiece the turf tōdō Takatora. Overcome the difficult construction building located close to the sandy beach in the exquisite turf. All military functions as a defense from the sea, from the shore-side defense and Navy bases which together compact. A vast moat to the lucrative defense poised until then and turret cannons that can be installed. Abu Dhabi is well-balanced perfection.
