Ujo (Crow Castle): Okayama Castle

Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to take you to a quick tour to Okayama Castle this time.

 


Okayama Castle

Okayama Castle, also called as Ujo (烏城, Crow Castle), was built by the lord Ukita Hideie in 1597. Many parts of the castle were destroyed in the Meiji era and during the war. But countless efforts (maintenance and renovation) has kept its figure as it would look like back in time.
