Kishiwada Castle, or Chikiri Castle, was erected by Hidemasa Koide in 1597. Nobukatsu, ruler of Okabe Mino, took possession of the castle in 1640 from Takatsuki. The Okabe family maintained its position for 13 generations (up to the Meiji Restoration). The castle's main tower was destroyed when struck by lightning in 1827, but was reconstructed in 1954, and is now also used as a folk museum.

  • Okabe reigned over 60000 stone Kishiwada Castle, destroyed by lightning in 1827. Only leave remnants of moats and stone walls. Was originally five-story tower was rebuilt as a Castle Tower 3 tier after World War II and that is at that time at backseat such anachronisms as the will was as a regional foothold. Inside the armor of Kishiwada Han, calligraphy and painting expositions, Kishiwada city views from the tower.

  • The concrete tower was built, once had a 5 tier Tower is destroyed by lightning in 1827 and now enters the Showa era from 3-tier stands. Outside of the honmaru and ninomaru was lost in development, also extant remains is a stone wall, moat, dogs running around. However, concrete tower is aside than wall of the Castle and the Tower has been restored and, in its own way look.

  • Great view from the top floor plus a pretty cool selection of old warrior outfits. Also it provided a nice break from the amazing Danjiri Matsuri. I accidentally lost one of my earrings, and despite a lack of common language, they understood and searched the entire castle for it! It wasn't found, but I truly appreciate this gesture.
  • went here december last year,a nice place for family or couple to take a walk and grab some food or ice cream,and can learn more bout the history too.
  • Comfortable!
  • It is a continuing 100 certified Castle castle. It is famous for the Danjiri Festival in autumn. Garden of the Castle 八陣 is nationally certified. It looks like castles, moats and stone walls and are in good condition. However, Castle is undeniable there in revival tower was built. Birthplace of Danjiri Festival and live video is displayed near the Danjiri Hall. Natural museum exhibits and individual trading is restricted in Kishiwada city sobura, because he personally owned numerous animal taxidermy, especially the Washington Treaty, not only here in Japan too many, there are a lot of places.
