Tateyama Castle is a Japanese castle located in Tateyama, southern Chiba Prefecture, Japan. At the end of the Edo period, Tateyama Castle was home to the Inaba clan, daimyō of Tateyama Domain, but the castle is better known for its association with the former rulers of Awa Province, the Satomi clan. The castle was also known as "Nekoya-jō".HistorySatomi Yoshiyori, virtually independent lord of all of the Bōsō Peninsula during the Sengoku Period, erected Tateyama Castle in 1580 to guard the entry to Edo Bay and the southern portions of his domains. After the Satomi clan was destroyed by the Tokugawa shogunate in 1614 and Tateyama Domain suppressed, the castle was allowed to fall into ruin.In 1781, the domain was reinstated, with Inaba Masaaki as the first daimyō of Tateyama Domain under the Inaba clan. He rebuilt the fortifications of the old castle, but apparently did not erect a donjon, as his successor, Inaba Masatake was only allowed to build a jinya fortified residence. The Inaba clan remained in residence at Tateyama until the Meiji Restoration.

  • Amazing museum. Very interesting, beautiful views. Recommended !!!
  • The views are stunning here. If you are a photographer or amateur as myself, i highly recommend going to the top of thw castle for the views. Although my japanese is close to zero the people here did their best to help us.
  • Great views, nice park but downsides are that it is a far walk from the station and you have to pay to get in the castle.
  • If you want a place to sit back and relax this is the place you are looking for. Great view of the city and the sea.
  • Nice place to view the city of Tateyama or go for a garden walk.
