Ozu Castle's tower was sadly demolished in 1888 owing to deterioration, however, it was reconstructed in 2004 as a symbol of Ozu City after much passionate activism on the part of local citizens.
The castle tower was faithfully restored to its original state with a wooden structure based on a miniature model of the old wooden framework and a wide range of other materials. The four turrets connected to the castle tower have now been designated as part of the nation's Important Cultural Property.
