Oka Castle Ruins岡城跡


Oka Castle Ruins are located in Takeda City, Oita Prefecture, and Oka Castle was known as the most impregnable mountain castle and was also the inspiration for the song Kojo-no-tsuki by Rentaro Taki. It has been designated as a National Historic Site and selected as one of Japan’s top 100 castles as well as one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots with beautiful cherry blossoms such as Yoshino cherry blossoms. The scenery of the well-known castle site with stone walls is tinted with pale pink by cherry blossoms and is like a real painting. The blossoms come into full bloom from late March to early April every year, and the castle holds a cherry blossom festival. The admission fee is 300 yen for high school students and older and 150 yen for elementary and junior high school students. Parking available.

          Oita Main Areas


          A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don't hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
