Known as “Ujo” or “crow castle” due to its black lacquer exterior, Okayama Castle sits in a tranquil location on the Asahi River - which was originally used as a castle moat - and was built in 1597 after eight years of construction. Although the original castle was destroyed in the final year of World War II, it was reconstructed in 1966. The famous Korakuen Garden can be found just across the river.
