Also called Tamamo Castle, Takamatsu Castle was built in the late 16th century by Chikamasa Ikoma, the first feudal lord of Takamatsu, and is one of only three castles in Japan surrounded by water moats. Originally the castle had a magnificent view of the surrounding area, with a unique Western-style, three-story tower with five floors on the interior. Although this main tower has not survived to the present day, its base was reconstructed based on historical photographs and the location of its foundation stones, and the Ushitora Tower, Moon-watch Tower and Mizutegomon Gate still stand impressively after the passage of centuries.
