In 1888 the keep of the castle was destroyed, but it was re-constructed in 2004.HistoryŌzu Castle was constructed in 1331 by Utsunomiya Toyofusa. However, the structure as represented now was built sometime between 1585–1617. During this period, the castle was controlled by a number of lords, including Wakisaka Yasuharu, Kobayakawa Takakage, Tōdō Takatora, and Toda Katsutaka. In 1617, the castle was occupied by Katō Sadayasu and, until the Meiji Restoration, the castle remained under control of the Katō clan. In 1888 the keep was destroyed by a fire, though the two yagura, or towers, that were connected by corridors to the keep were saved. What remained of the castle survived World War II, even though the surrounding castle town was firebombed. In 2004 the keep was re-constructed, along with the corridors that connected the keep to the yagura. A small museum about the history of the castle is housed in the keep and yagura.Plan your Ōzu Castle visit and explore what else you can see and do in Ozu using our Ozu tour planner.

大洲城に行ってきました。大洲城の天守は老朽化で明治の頃に解体してしまったため、現在は復元したものですが、当時の写真など残っていたため、正確に復元しているんだそうです。 天守の復元をこれほど忠実に行って、いるのも珍しいですね。I went to OSU Castle. It seems to me for photographs at that time remained for Ozu Castle Tower was dismantled by the time of the Meiji era in Aging, now restored, but an accurate reconstruction. To restore the Castle so closely, that's unusual.show original
宇和島から松山へ向かう途中、右手の小高いところにお城が見えて、急遽立ち寄りです。 近くに行ってみると、かなり昔の観光地という佇まいですが、カメラを首から下げた方数人とすれ違うなど、平日でもそれなりに見物客は来る様です。 注意しなければならないのは、観光地であると共に市民の通学路、生活道路にもなっている道なので、お城へ向かうときは徐行励行が大切になります。Uwajima to Matsuyama on the way from the right height so far looks like Castle is suddenly drop by.

When heading to the Palace so be careful road becomes a tourist destination with citizens School Road, roads, slow procurement becomes important.show original
天守は新造ながら、建造当時を彷彿とさせる急階段など、歴史を思わせる造り。櫓は重文だけあり、小さいながら風格あり。 伊予大洲駅からバスは１～３時間毎くらいしかないですが、宇和島自動車で大洲本町か伊予鉄南予バスで枡形或いはぐるりん大洲バスで。７分ほど。大洲本町から大洲城は徒歩５分ほど、枡形からはすぐ。 駅から歩くと２０分くらい。 レンタサイクルは、駅前の道を真っ直ぐ３分ほど歩くと信号の近くに自転車屋さ... read more »A newly built tower built at that time, while reminiscent reminiscent history, such as the steep stairs to.

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.
Small but intimate castle.
