The castle that served as Ishida Mitsunari's base in the Battle of Sekigahara
Originally built in 1535, Ogaki Castle was temporarily occupied by commander Ishida Mitsunari, who made it his base in the decisive Battle of Sekigahara. The castle tower as it stands now is a reconstruction, but it is said to have been a huge fortress with more than 10 turrets. Inside the castle, models and informational material on the Battle of Sekigahara are on display. You can even touch the bows and matchlock guns to feel their weight and size for yourself.
