Okazaki-jo Castle

Okazaki-jo Castle is known as a castle where Tokugawa Ieyasu was born. At that time the size was 1 km east to west, 0.9 km north to south, and seems to be the fourth size in Japan following Edo castle, Okazaki-jo Castle and Himeji-jo Castle. At the Meiji Restoration, most of the castle which was deemed unnecessary in the new era was torn down in 1873-74. The castle currently in existence was restored with reinforced concrete in 1959, part of the castle remains a park and it is famous as a sakura sightseeing spot.
