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.

  • It is a great Academy was restored. If no picture unless Flash is taken in. Role of Shoin, because school buildings think? How to learn what will? At the reception, "is the reason why the north-facing gate? "And I have sometimes heard people say ask. Fortunately, few visitors on weekdays and rain in a will? Many told me. Also Castle is a little skewed against the cardinal in the Castle at the time of surveying techniques against the Cardinal was accurate seems.
