Travel Guide - Kishiwada Castle


Kishiwada Castle was originally constructed by Nigita Takaie, a nephew of Kusunoki Masashige, in 1334. Then the castle's original five-story Tenshukaku donjon was constructed by Koide Hidemasa in 1585, but it was burnt down by thunder in 1827. Thanks to the donations from the local citizens and the former lord's offspring, the present three-story Tenshukaku donjon was reconstructed in 1954, and castle walls and turrets were also reconstructed in 1969. The inside of the reconstructed donjon is used as a museum.
The castle was also called Chigiri Castle, and today a part of the castle premises are maintained as Chigiri Park.
