Sakasai Castle Park (逆井城跡公園)

3.5

Park / Green Space

A park designated a Prefectural Historic Site encompassing the site of Sakasai Castle, a plains castle constructed in the late Warring States period. Built in 1577 by the Later Hojo clan to serve as a base for their expansion into northern Kanto, the castle was destroyed by the mighty samurai lord Toyotomi Hideyoshi in 1590 and abandoned. Today, the outer moat and portions of the castle base still remain in an untouched state. Castle facilities such as the main gate, bridge, walls, main building, and two-tier tower have been reconstructed in based on archeological excavations, showing what the castle looked like in its heyday and giving visitors the chance to feel like they've gone back in time. Some 200 cherry trees grow on the grounds, including Beni Sashima cherries, an endemic Ibaraki variety, and the park is a top local destination for viewing cherry blossoms in the spring.

戦国時代の城というより砦の遺跡です。なか入ることができる[二層櫓]や、米を蒸す蒸篭と同じように、井形に組んだ[井楼矢倉]、[櫓門]などは発掘から創造して再現されたものですが、当時の土塁・堀の一部が当時のままの姿で保存されているのが貴重です。その他にも移築された建築物などが保存されている公園になっています。

よく整備された城内で、非常に見学しやすかったです。
堀の遺構もよく保存されており、とても面白かった。
いくつか復元されている建築も興味深い。
自然がよく残っていて、ふと足元を見たらカブトムシがいたのに驚きました。

          Just a stone’s throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuen - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens - in spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
