Step back in time and explore the early 17th-century atmosphere at Imabari Castle, one of the three well-known "castles on the sea." Though destroyed by order of the Meiji rulers, the edifice underwent reconstruction in 1980. Observe the citadel's ingenious seawater moat, which can control the water level through use of the tides and a series of sluice gates. As you enter, note the unusual main gate, featuring iron plating and turrets. Climb to the top of the castle for views of the surrounding complex, moat, and cityscape and port beyond.

Imabari Castle Reviews
自転車でぐるりと一周して観ましたが、お濠とのマッチングがとても美しいお城で、次ぎにいく時は城内の展示物や最上階からの天望を眺めたいと思っています。 more »I went around by bicycle and watched it, but the matching with the moat is very beautiful, and i want to look at the exhibits in the castle and the sky from the top floor when I go to the next.
1602年に建てられた城で、天守閣は昭和55年に再建されたものだそうです。天守閣の内部は博物館のようになっていて、鎧などが展示してありました。最上階の展望台からは今治の海が見渡せます。またいくつかの櫓なども再建されており、それぞれ内部も見学できます。 more »The castle was built in 1602 and the castle tower was rebuilt in Showa 55. The inside of the castle tower was like a museum, and armor was on display. The observatory on the top floor overlooks imabari sea. Several towers have also been rebuilt, and you can see the interior of each.
There are couple of museums inside. Good place for photography and to know about culture. You can go to the top of the castle which provides observatory with explanation about the surrounding. There is a small souvenir shop at the ground floor. Imabari castle is at walkable distance for both Bus stand and Railway station.
