Kochi Castle

Kochi Castle

Kochi Castle is the one of only twelve “Tenshu” (castle tower), one of only 4 ‘Honmaru Goten (Lord’s Residence & reception suite)’ and one of only 9 ’Otemon (main gate)’ to have kept its original structures from the Edo period (1603-1867).
Construction started at Kochi castle in 1601 by Lord Yamauchi Katsutoyo and was completed in 1611. Most of the castle except the Otemon Gate was completely destroyed by a fire in 1727 and rebuilt 25 years later.
It is also one of the few castles you can take a photo of ‘Tenshu’ & ‘Otemon’ together in one shot.
The castle buildings exist to this day and have been designated an important part of Japan’s cultural buildings.
