Travel Guide - Kaminoyama Castle

InformationInformation

Kaminoyama Castle was originally constructed by Takenaga Yoshitada, a retainer of the Mogami clan, in 1535. The castle's donjon was built in the Edo Period (1603 - 1868) by the Toki clan, but it was destroyed by the order of the Tokugawa Shogunate when the clan was transferred elsewhere in 1692. Then the entire castle was destroyed by the Meiji government in 1873 and turned into a park.
Today, the ruins including moats and stone walls remain in Tsukioka Park. The present donjon was reconstructed in 1982 and is used as a museum. Visitors can enjoy a splendid view of the Zao Mountain Range and Kaminoyama City from the top of the building.
