Sumoto Castle Ruins洲本城跡

Castle / Ruins of Castle

A castle ruin located on 130-meter Mt. Mikumayama located on the south side of the city's urban area. The castle served as a center for the ruling of Awaji Province from the Warring States period to the Edo period. The castle's fortress, an excellent example of Warring States period architecture, is well preserved and has been designated a National Historic Site as well as a Cultural Property by Hyogo Prefecture. The current castle tower was built as an observatory in 1928 and is Japan's oldest imitation castle tower (entry is prohibited at the present time). The surrounding grounds are maintained as a park which offers a sweeping view of the Kitan Strait and which is also a renowned destination for cherry blossom viewing in the spring.

          Hyogo Main Areas


          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
