  • 100 visited sunpu Castle in meijo. It is a very large park. Seems there are some repairs, modifications, remains of stone walls and moats. Gate and the Tower has been restored to the East. Currently, you are excavation for the tower. Oishi is carved of stone walls unearthed and mark, you can see things. Also a display room at the excavation site "when Nya I know", such as roof tiles excavated can be seen. Visit the fact clearly scale of sunpu Castle. Prefectural Government annex adjacent to the 21st floor observation lobby (free) and then the whole castle looks like, stop by, next time I think. Found a crest of Hollyhock flower garden within the Park. Complex form, but they are made very well and I was impressed.
