Oka Castle Ruins


Great Castle wall construction, a magnificent view from the top


Oka Castle originally constructed in 1185, and had been enlarged multiple times and eventually

covered a widespread area on the steep hills overlooking a river and all the surrounding countryside

up to the Kuju mountain range clearly visible in the distance.


End in 1871 when the new Meiji government ordered the castle to be destroyed, striving for the

modernization of Japan.



The best season to visit here is in the spring and can enjoy beautiful cherry blossoms.
With many historical sites including Samurai residences of the olden day, Takeda.
