Travel Guide - Morioka Castle Ruins (Iwate Park)

InformationInformation

Morioka Castle was constructed by Nanbu Nobunao in 1598. Unlike other Japanese castles, the castle had no Tenshu-kaku central tower to show allegiance to the Tokugawa Shogunate. In 1906, the site was converted to Iwate Park and has been an oasis for the citizens since then. The castle's stone walls which were made of Morioka's granite are still can be seen in the park. Takuboku Ishikawa (1886 - 1912), a well-known poet who spent his younger days in Morioka City, loved the site and wrote several poems about it.
