Fukuchiyama Castle (Fkuchiyama City Museum)

  • castle

A castle with a beautiful Tenshukaku (castle tower) that is a symbol of Fukuchiyama. It is open to public as a local museum now.

Fukuchiyama Castle, which was one called Yokoyama Castle by the precursor , was sued to be a fort of local ruling Yokoyama family.
Akechi Mitsuhide, who had gained control of the Tamba area, refurbished this castle with top-class castle architecture technology and changed the name into Fukuchiyama Castle.
There were several additional buildings such as a three-layered, four-storied castle tower and Ninomaru, an outer castle surrounding the main palace in this castle, However, the castle was destroyed after the abolition of the fiefdom system in the bagging of the Meiji era.
There are still remaining , at present, original stone walls between the palace and the tower, which are called Toyoiwa-no-i, and a Demon guard station.
The current castle was rebuilt in 1986 .
The inside space is open for Fukuchiyama Local Museum.
Visitors can see Fukuchiyama City Sato Taisei Memorial Art Museum in the same area, where art works of Sato Taisei, a master of Japanese paintings, are exhibited.
