Sluice Description board. Takamatsu Castle was a sea castle that surrounded the north side of the ocean and the three sides in a moat and poured seawater into it. Although there are many castles in the moat (such as Imabari Castle), the only thing that is completely seawater is Takamatsu Castle. Takamatsu Castle ruins are still adjacent to the Seto Inland Sea, but unlike those days, there is a national highway between the ocean and the castle. According to the signboard, the moat and the Seto Inland Sea are connected by culvert under the national road, and it is said that seawater still enters.

Lanceolate around the cloud.

Lanceolate out of the Unkaku garden. This is a cherry tree on the south side. The gate was in existence until the Showa era, but it was destroyed by the U.S. military indiscriminate bombing in 1945. The red discolored part on the side of the stone wall is a sign that the gate is burnt.

From the vicinity of the Cherry Blossom Gate, a tower stand in the Uchibori is seen in front. The combination of the inner moat dyed in the deep green and the tower which was neatly arranged after the restoration work, and the high-rise building in the back.

It goes out to a large site when advancing beyond the mark of the Cherry Blossoms gate. According to the pamphlet, it is said that the place where the bashing of the horse was once by the Baba ruins of the cherry blossoms. It used to be twice as wide as this.

Ushitora Turret Description Board. Built in 1677, it is the same period as the Moon Tower that remains on the other side of the garden. When relocated, I thought that the size of the tower stand was well-suited, but the stone wall of the foundation was expanded according to the size of the Ushitora tower per relocated. Also in relation to the angle, it is also installed by rotating 90 degrees to the right.

The front of the Ushitora Tower is a masugata, and the entrance to the Asahi Bridge which crosses the middle moat is hardened. This is a photo from the inside that looked masugata inside. The stone wall on the right side is not so well-appointed, but the left and front walls of the lespedeza are firmly trimmed lespedeza. You can see a big stone rock.
