Sasayama Castle is a Japanese castle in Sasayama, Hyōgo, Japan.HistoryConstruction was begun by the order of Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1608, and it was completed in six months. Ikeda Terumasa was in charge of the construction; the plan of the castle was done by Tōdō Takatora. It is said that 20 daimyo were mobilized for the construction. The castle was so well designed that Ieyasu commanded that the tenshu, or keep, not be constructed because he feared that it would be used as a base against him.Sasayama Castle was held by the Aoyama clan for 123 years during the Edo period. The first Aoyama lordship of the castle started in 1748 and continued until it was torn down in 1871.Almost all of the buildings in the castle were destroyed after the Meiji Restoration, except for the Ōshoin (Grand Hall). However, the Ōshoin was destroyed during a firebombing air raid by American forces in 1944. It was reconstructed in 2000.AccessNikaimachi Stop of Shinki BusWith our online itinerary creator, Tanba Sasayama attractions like Sasayama Castle Daishoin can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
