Takamatsu Castle, Takamatsu

3.1
Step back in time in the heart of the city at Takamatsu Castle, one of Japan's three "castles on the sea." Admire the moats that give the castle its categorization, filled by drawing in seawater using the tides and sluice gates. Though most of the complex was destroyed during the Meiji period, reconstruction is underway. View the two original towers still standing, along with the moat and the walls. Afterwards, sit and relax in the castle's stone garden among cherry and pine trees.

  • We went to Takamatsu, so we also visited Takamatsu Castle. Another name is <玉藻城>! * I don't know what the theory is, it's not bad!

  • I saw it from the hotel where I was staying, so I went there somehow, but it was very good. You can go to the castle by ropeway and see the inside of the castle. I think that the castle is repaired as it used to be, but the pillars of that time seem to remain. Old people are thin and petite, the stairs are narrow and steep, so it may be hard for the elderly. I'm glad i learned a lot. I would also like to go there again.
