Sasayama Castle, Sasayama

3.4
Sasayama Castle is a Japanese castle in Sasayama, Hyōgo, Japan.HistoryConstruction was begun by the order of Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1608, and it was completed in six months. Ikeda Terumasa was in charge of the construction; the plan of the castle was done by Tōdō Takatora. It is said that 20 daimyo were mobilized for the construction. The castle was so well designed that Ieyasu commanded that the tenshu, or keep, not be constructed because he feared that it would be used as a base against him.Sasayama Castle was held by the Aoyama clan for 123 years during the Edo period. The first Aoyama lordship of the castle started in 1748 and continued until it was torn down in 1871.Almost all of the buildings in the castle were destroyed after the Meiji Restoration, except for the Ōshoin (Grand Hall). However, the Ōshoin was destroyed during a firebombing air raid by American forces in 1944. It was reconstructed in 2000.AccessNikaimachi Stop of Shinki Bus

    The tall buildings of heijo-Kyo is generally expected. However, the points are located relatively close to the Tanba sasayama "Kyoto and Osaka so decorated for living pretty high levels of inside the building. Opportunity arises so most study'd was definitely worthy of a visit would be.

    Down in two towns, 20 minutes by bus from sasayamaguchi station and there's a sasayama city centre. On a traditional confectionery, restaurant, cafes and Western tourist, alongside banks and shops. Five minutes walk to the sasayama Castle. Castle Tower, but Tokugawa Ieyasu ordered the Lords (daimyo), built in a construction site, moats and stone walls was good. And enters the castle in sasayama city views. The restored study Tokyo felt the influence of the culture. Decanio Festival August becomes very crowded. I also wanted to come in those days.
