Castle · Historic Site
The birthplace of one of the most influential men in Japanese history, Okazaki Castle offers picturesque grounds, rich historical artifacts, and panoramic views. First constructed in the 15th century, the castle gained renown upon the birth of Tokugawa Ieyasu, a daimyo's son who went on to establish a shogunate ruling clan that lasted over 200 years. Though reconstructed during the 1950s, the citadel retains is original moat and foundations, as well as a range of relics and models displayed in its exemplary museum. Try on a replica version of Ieyasu's samurai armor for a distinct photo opportunity, and visit the viewing platform to take in extensive scenic views of the city and the Mikawa plains below.
