Travel Guide - Okayama Castle

InformationInformation

Okayama developed as the castle town of Okayama Castle. Okayama Castle was constructed in 1573 by Ukita Hideie. After controlled by Ukita clan and Kobayakawa clan, the castle became the center of the Okayama domain during the Edo Period (1603 - 1868). The castle is famous for the black exterior of the four-storied castle tower, earning the nickname of "U-jo (Crow Castle)."
The Okayama Castle's original castle tower was burnt down during the World War II and the current building was rebuilt in 1966. The inside of the castle tower is a museum which displays many relics of local history. The Bizen-yaki Kobo craft center which also located in the castle tower offers hands-on Bizen pottery making (advanced booking required). The top of the castle tower is an observatory where you can enjoy a panoramic view of Okayama City.
