Castle

There were many castles in Japan.
A Japanese castle with a castle tower is built from the end of the Warring States period.
The castle where the first full-scale castle tower was built is Azuchi Castle of Oda Nobunaga.
After that, many great castles were built by the early Edo period.
Japan's castle is made of stone wall which is the foundation and a wooden building.
Because of this, I lost many buildings due to dismantling by Ordinance abolishing castles and war damage.
There are 12 castles with extant castle towers.
Only the stone wall remains in many castle ruins.
Currently, as a symbol of the town, and restore the appearance, if there is no data is referring to other castles and is building a castle tower.
