Kakegawa Castle, built by Mr. Imagawa who was a powerful daimyo of the Sengoku Period,
is famous for the influential Daimyo who wanted the location to be used as a military base for the Totomikuni area(presently Shizuoka Prefecture). This castle has gone through a lot of castle owners, but in the ten years when Yamauchi Kazutoyo owned the castle, during the Sengoku Period, the castle tower, the major gate, the castle town, and the castle town were built, and it became known as Tokai's famous castle. Even after entering the Edo Period, the castle owner changed and the castle tower also collapsed due to a big earthquake that hit the Tokai district at the end of the Tokugawa Period, but the castle tower was rebuilt during the Heisei Period. For a castle tower to be rebuilt in wood was very unusual at the time, but it communicates the beauty of days passed. In addition, the Kakegawa Castle Goten (daimyo’s mansion) was rebuilt in the late Edo period, and it is a very valuable piece of history as an existing castle palace.
