Tamamo Park (Ruins of Takamatsu Castle) (史跡高松城跡・玉藻公園)


Castle / Ruins of Castle

Takamatsu Castle was the residence of the Ikoma family, the lords of Sanuki Province, and subsequently of the Matsudaira clan, the rulers of the Takamatsu domain. Tamamo Park has been created around the Castle ruins. Takamatsu Castle was famous as one of Japan’s three great “water castles.” The Castle’s Ushitorayagura Tower and Tsukimiyagura Tower still survive, along with the Hiunkaku villa and garden, which has been designated as a National Place of Scenic Beauty. With beautiful cherry blossom in the spring, a chrysanthemum exhibition in the autumn, etc., there is plenty to see and do at any time of year.

The Takamatsu Castle is known as one of the only three castles which has a moat that is directly connected to the sea. The castle is unfortunately not around any more but there a few surviving...

visit if you have the time, but to me, having visited more castles around Japan, I think this castle is a bit plain, but for historical purpose, it is worth to visit, and from the top of the castle...

Old Japanese fort ruins, with a small museum. Pretty gardens and a moat. In the middle of Takamatsu city. A quick walk though. I took 2 hours to see everything. The main building of the fort is gone...

          Kagawa Areas


          Japan's smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone's throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa's prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country's best gardens.
