Okayama Castle, Castle Tower (岡山城天守閣)

3.5

Castle / Ruins of Castle

Okayama Castle was constructed over a period of eight years by Ukita Hideie, one member of Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s Council of Five Elders, and was completed in 1597. It is also called “Crow Castle” for its external appearance, as the castle tower walls have black lacquered siding which was a characteristic of this era. The three-tiered, six-storied watchtower-style castle tower is a pentagon of unequal sides and is said to imitate the castle tower of Oda Nobunaga’s Azuchi Castle. The castle tower, which was a National Treasure, was lost due to wartime fires but was rebuilt in 1966.

Review of The Site of Okayama Castle Ishiyama Gate

Reviewed:2020/01/04 空襲で焼けた名残のある石垣
石山門は岡山城廃城後も残っていた門だそうですが、昭和20年の空襲で焼けてしまったそうです。赤茶けた石垣がその名残を伝えています。周辺には岡山城由来の石垣が各所に見られます。
Reviewed:2019/12/12 岡山散策にて
岡山駅から後楽園に行く途中で発見しました。廃城となった富山城の大手門を移築したと伝えられていましたが、空襲にて残念にも焼失して石垣のみ残っています。ついでに寄る感じかと思いました○
Reviewed:2019/09/24 石山公園の南側に残るお城の跡
岡山市の中心部からお城に向かって歩くと、石山公園に着きました。その公園の南側に、この石山門跡がありました。
門跡の表示がある目の前には、小学校が建っていました。

          Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan’s Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
