This gate and turret are said to have been transferred from Masaki Castle in the early 17th Century and are the most important defense structures for rear attack.

I truly find this a interesting subject. Never looked at this subject in this manner. If you are planning to create more articles relating to this subject, I definitely will be back in the near future!

I spent some time researching this and had a lot of help from a visit to Ehime Prefecture center in Matsuyama. The castle itself is well preserved mainly because it was never in any conflicts. It is good to study how it was set up for defense and the architecture itself is impressive. The fact that the hill itself was originally 2 hills with the area in between filled in is a massive task.
