In the late Edo era, Japan had approx. 200 castles, which appear in scenes of Japanese history. Unfortunately, after the Ordinance for abandoning castles in the Meiji era, wars, fires, and natural disasters, there are now only 12 castles in the country, which still remain its original shape. Most of them have been rebuilt after wars, and are now used as a museum and exhibitions.
