Takamatsu Castle, Takamatsu

2.9
Step back in time in the heart of the city at Takamatsu Castle, one of Japan's three "castles on the sea." Admire the moats that give the castle its categorization, filled by drawing in seawater using the tides and sluice gates. Though most of the complex was destroyed during the Meiji period, reconstruction is underway. View the two original towers still standing, along with the moat and the walls. Afterwards, sit and relax in the castle's stone garden among cherry and pine trees.

  • February Sunday, tranquil moats and turret was quaint. Castle, restoring the article looking like the Castle anvil stone fence was being repaired. Which is fun. But are concerned tactless of skyscrapers in the background.

  • Takamatsu Castle represents a portion of the current original castle that should be more beautiful than it already is, the site is very close to the station of Takamatsu, Kagawa-ken, entry on the island of Shikoku. The interesting of this castle is the environment protected through channels built with sea water (it's usually fresh water). Also the garden surrounding it is worth the visit and take beautiful photos of the Castle. Main attraction of Takamatsu.

  • From Takamatsu chikko station of Takamatsu-Kotohira electric railroad's moat looks the part. From the front of the station tracks ran along the Castle. View from the train was a vast site. It is now closer to the sea Castle once stood. Surrounding area is maintained as parks.
