Fukuchiyama Castle

Fukuchiyama Castle was built by Mitsuhide Akechi, who conquered Tamba around 1579.
The castle was abandoned in the early Meiji era (1868-1912), but the castle tower was restored in 1986.
It is the only castle in the Northern Kinki region with a castle tower.
The castle is now a local museum, exhibiting materials on Mitsuhide Akechi and the history of Fukuchiyama City.
