Travel Guide - Tsuruga Castle (Wakamatsu Castle)


Tsurugajo Castle was originally built in 1384 and was called Kurokawa Castle at that time. In 1591, Gamo Ujisato constructed the seven-story Tenshukaku building and also renamed the castle Turuga Castle. The castle was destroyed in 1874 after the Boshin Civil War. The realistic replica of the castle was constructed in 1965 and now used as a historical museum. The moat and stone walls of the original castle still remain. About a thousand cherry blossoms adorn the castle in April.
