Imabari Castle, Imabari

(3.9/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • It remains in the castle is a beautiful castle does not exist historically, an existing stone wall and moat. Or build a Castle Tower, Ishigaki 1600 at that time, this area was sands was very difficult. Or made it possible is how to load the stone wall called the "berm" Takamatsu Castle, exhibition at Nakatsu Castle, lined 3 sea Castle is a castle inside the Imabari Castle and unrelated exhibition almost little related to the Imabari Castle what you want is. End up just see the look in the status quo.
