  • Perhaps Japan's newest Castle is gone! In addition, because the country never would landscape that has changed since the Edo period!!

  • Parked at the parking lot of the city centre and walk to the OSU Castle, old Samurai residence was in the town had flickered. From the OSU Castle overlooking the city, but the city itself seems to be small town.

  • Ozu Castle lonely Castle was visited at rich material with the enthusiasm of the citizens in Japan for the first time in wooden castle has been restored, had become a cup of "Castle". Kakegawa Castle claims to be "restoring castles in Japan's first" by the way, Yamauchi one look the same Castle was referring to Kochi Castle, so is strictly not to "restore". It's not adequacy with the accompanying kitchen tower could not find previously, as well as the donjon (good for me), a restored wooden, high column Tower has been published at the same time, the entry fee is required only in appearance only! You can watch hiji River over the appearance of the Castle Vista enjoys a variety of appearance over the surrounding Honmaru. However, car navigation aimed at OSU Castle, the small parking lot near the ruins of a castle, "full" even on weekdays! And "no parking at this location. "And signs it. Went to the ruins of a castle and watch 3-not only the 4-tuple. In other words, "useless! "Is the parking. Far away and listen to the story and there show tour parking lot, a Cultural Center parking lot and, as HP. I want to set up "information board" near the ruins of a I ~. I visited to the light after midnight, but just as beautiful starry sky, "stars Ozu Castle in the night" was herself.

  • A castle. Nice, damages after the earthquake was rather interesting.
  • Beautifully located on the river bend
  • Great view from the top!
  • Average smaller castle on top of a big hill. The hill has been been mostly paved over making it easy to go up and down, however it doesn't have as much of the original natural beauty of nearby Uwajima castle and instead replaces it with a touristy-y feel with many souvenir shops and large buildings. I find it difficult to find a good angle of this castle once you reach the top. It's also a bit of a walk from the train station.
  • A small but quite nice castle with a reconstructed main keep.
