A famous castle that can be seen up close from the Shinkansen platform, which is rare in Japan

Fukuyama Castle is the last famous castle built in the Edo period by Katsushige Mizuno, a cousin of Ieyasu Tokugawa, in 1619. There are castle buildings such as the castle tower, Fushimi turret, and Sujitetsu Gomon, which are important cultural properties of the country, and the ruins of the castle are preserved as national historic sites. The castle tower was destroyed by fire in 1945, but was rebuilt in 1966 and is now a museum that tells the history of Fukuyama City, displaying the relics and materials of successive feudal lords. The reconstructed Onyuden and Tsukimi turret can be used as rental venues. It is also known as a famous place for cherry blossoms, and about 300 cherry blossoms of various types are planted.
