Kakegawa Castle

Asahina Yasuhiro, a secretary of Imagawa Yoshitada, built this castle to protect the Enshu area. After Asahina, this castle was governed by Tokugawa Ieyasu and became popular as one of the most beautiful castles in the Tokai area. Although an earthquake in 1854 destroyed many of the castle structures, including the main building, a part of the residence building and drum houses remained intact. In particular, the residence has great historical value and has been designated an important cultural asset of Japan. In April, 1994, the main building was rebuilt entirely of wood, to recreate its original beauty.
