  • Is a Castle located in famous rentaro Taki Kojo no Tsuki, taketa city. Keep the statue of rentaro Taki. Has a long history of Oka Castle, is dating back to the middle ages Heian Era end. It is then hung in the Edo period from the end of the warring States, the remaining earthworks. That left only the stone walls by waste Castle of the Meiji era, the song "Kojo no tsuki" was born. That day came in heavy rain, slowly look around failed. But having early winter evening, causing haze, was fantastic. Was suffering misfortune because it came down the mountain, 番u wild boar, but ran away to. It was pounding! People may appear in low morning and evening, so caution is required! In the Kumamoto earthquake have so far also flood damage by the Typhoon was multiplied by crumbling stone walls of some and was patched in places. Quickly go back to the original, I think.
