Maruoka Castle, Sakai
Categories: Castles, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Constructed in 1576, Maruoka Castle draws visitors to its tenshu, the oldest main keep in Japan. Destroyed by the Great Fukui Earthquake in 1948, the stronghold was later rebuilt using 80 percent of the original materials, including stone roof tiles, and pine and cedar wood. Climb the steep stairs to the top floor and enjoy the view from the watchtower. Apart from its historical importance, the castle's surrounding Yoshino cherry blossoms embody the spirit of Japan in spring.

Said to be the oldest castle in Japan. The climbs up the steep wooden ladders give a sense of how life may have been for its original inhabitants. At only 200 yen for admission, it was a wonderful cultural experience.
A beautiful, old castle...which is kind of an above ground dungeon. The stairs can be difficult to climb.
