Takaoka Castle

From Jcastle.info



Maeda Toshinaga built Takaoka Castle in 1609 after Toyama Castle burned down. Toshinaga died in 1614. The castle was decommissioned in 1615, before it was even finished, under the One Castle per Domain law. It was designated as a park in 1875.

Visit Notes

Several baileys and large water moats remain, but I'm not sure why it would have been selected for the Top 100.
