Uwajima Castle

Uwajima Castle Uwajima Castle

Uwajima Castle, along with Matsuyama Castle, is one of Japan’s twelve castles with original surviving keeps (tenshu). Once a strong fortress facing Uwajima Bay, the castle is enclosed within an irregular pentagon-shaped land area. The castle was built by Tōdō Takatora, a feudal lord known for his excellence in castle design. With steep flights of stone steps along its enormous stone walls, the three-storey, triple-layer castle tower stands prominently on a hill top. Inside the castle, you can enjoy the wooden interiors along with views of Uwajima City and Uwajima Bay in the distance.
