Uwajima Castle and Ozu Castle June 25, 2016


Uwajima Castle and Ozu Castle

The second update from my Shikoku trip is Uwajima Castle (Ehime Pref.) and Ozu Castle in Ehime Prefecture.

Uwajima Castle far exceeded my expectations. You tend to see mostly pictures of the main keep and there is not much around it, but I was really impressed by all the stonework here. Once the Daiemon Bailey restoration is complete this castle will be even more impressive.

Ozu Castle is a must see. Besides the 4 original yagura designated Important Cultural Properties, the reconstructed wooden main keep is beautiful. The castle is so picturesque in the valley along that river that you could probably spend a whole day moving around the town to take photos from many locations.
