宇和島城

Uwajima Castle

Uwajima Castle was built in 1601 by the military commander, Todo Takatora, a well-known expert in castle construction.
Later, in 1666, the castle tower was rebuilt, and is now registered as part of the nation's Important Cultural Property as one of only a dozen precious original castle towers remaining today.
After a period of 400 years, the castle tower of Uwajima Castle still rises into the sky as the symbol of Uwajima.
* The castle tower is the main architectural feature of a castle.
* The twelve extant castle towers are the only dozen castle towers that remain in Japan and were made of wood in the Edo period or earlier.
