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, 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.
Okayama Castle lies not far from Okayama JR Station. Only go down Momotaro Street from the station and that’s where the castle is. Accessible by walk or you could catch a tramcar called Momo-den to the nearest stop to the castle.
