Kubota Castle (久保田城, Kubota-jō) is a Japanese castle in the city Akita, Akita Prefecture, Japan. Throughout the Edo period, Kubota Castle was home to the Satake clan, daimyō of Kubota Domain, rulers of northern Dewa Province. The castle was also known as "Yadome-jō" (矢留城) or "Kuzune-jō" (葛根城).

Disappointing modern reconstruction.
Simple and inexpensive castle to visit. Entrace fee is only 100 yen. Situated at the top of the hill and only accessible by foot. It takes around 20 minutes from Akita Station. View of Akita city from 3rd floor of castle is very good.
