Kaminoyama Castle (Tsukioka Park)
Kaminoyama Castle was once called “the famous castle of Ushu.” It has been revived as a local museum 290 years after it was demolished by the Shogunate.
2012 was the 30th anniversary of the opening of the museum, and the exhibition room on the first floor was renovated under the title of “Kaminoyama’s Four Seasons, History and Culture” to make the exhibition even more spectacular.
From the castle tower, you can enjoy a view of the traditional samurai houses and of the Zao mountain range and the hot spring area.
