Only the castle in the outskirts of Kyoto, which was the center of the Japan, is full of stories of famous warlords.
Personally renowned as a cultural personTakashi Hosokawa(Yusai) is one of my favorite warlords, but I stillMitsuhide AkechiI’m attracted to the point of the castle related to the end of the last.
It is a story that it was a dense and was a bush until it was maintained as a park in the world of Heisei. The mock tower which has been made beautiful too much in the park making and was not made is built. It is also true that there are pros and cons in the opinion that the atmosphere of the castle and the ruins has been impaired in this. Certainly not enough for those who prefer medieval castles and the like. Such a personKamashi ShrineLet’s not forget to go.
