Okazaki Castle, Okazaki

3.3
The birthplace of one of the most influential men in Japanese history, Okazaki Castle offers picturesque grounds, rich historical artifacts, and panoramic views. First constructed in the 15th century, the castle gained renown upon the birth of Tokugawa Ieyasu, a daimyo's son who went on to establish a shogunate ruling clan that lasted over 200 years. Though reconstructed during the 1950s, the citadel retains is original moat and foundations, as well as a range of relics and models displayed in its exemplary museum. Try on a replica version of Ieyasu's samurai armor for a distinct photo opportunity, and visit the viewing platform to take in extensive scenic views of the city and the Mikawa plains below.

  • Run the route, the Okazaki Castle of Tokugawa Ieyasu who was born in the city, when it comes to see the green. The castle is surrounded by Sylvan wells used in the baby's first bath of Ieyasu and the urban area. Wisteria terrace. Delicious miso-flavored crackers.

  • I visited on the night of Jan. If you watch the White exterior detail, good day felt. However, I think watching lit up like that emerge from the darkness of the night, feeling of Okazaki Castle, this is good in this.
