The reconstruction of a castle tower, once famously called the "castle of Tokai"
It is said that the castle was built between 1512 A.D. and 1513 A.D. in the late Muromachi period, and subsequently became the battleground for the Imagawa, Takeda, and Tokugawa armies. Kazutoyo Yamauchi, a vassal of Hideyoshi Toyotomi was stationed at this castle in 1590. Kazutoyo dedicated himself to the remarkable extension of the castle, the development of the castle town, and embankment work in Oi River during the 10 years of his residence in the castle. The present castle, reminiscent of the times when it was called the "famous castle of Tokai region", was reconstructed in 1994.
