Remains of Toba Castle鳥羽城跡
Toba Castle was built by Yoshitaka Kuki
Toba Castle was built by Yoshitaka Kuki who led the naval force in a number of military exploits in the 16th century. The sea-facing castle, the only one of its kind in Japan, had an Otemon gate (sluice gate) that jutted out into the sea. Today, the stone walls of the castle form the "Toba Castle: Sannomaru Square" and visitors can climb to the mountaintop from here for a panoramic view of the Toba Bay.
