Shirakawa Komine Castle (小峰城跡)

Castle / Ruins of Castle

Shirakawa Komine Castle is a flatland-style Japanese castle that is just north of Shirakawa Station on the Tohoku Main Line. It is among Japan’s Top 100 Castles and one of Top 3 Tohoku Castles thanks to its stone walls which are rare in the Tohoku region. It was built in the Nanboku-cho period by Yuki Chikatomo on Kominegaoka Hill. In the Edo period it was lived in by Shogunate families such as the Honda and Matsudaira families. The modern three-story keep was reconstructed based on images from the Edo period and was designated as a National Historical Site in 2010.

          Fukushima is a blend of fantastic scenery, delectable sake, and kaleidoscopic colors. This nature-rich prefecture displays its splendor from the hidden Abukuma Cave underground right to the top of its sky-high mountain road, known as the Bandai-Azuma Skyline.
