A traditional flatland-mountain castle of Japan. Even as castles across Japan are being renovated due to fires and earthquakes, Kochi Castle has overcome repeated crises and is one of few remaining wooden-structure castles in Japan in its original state.
The spot where the Otemon (castle gate) and the castle tower can be viewed together in the same frame provides a rare photo opportunity.
