    Asuke Castle

    • \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

    Located atop Mt. Mayumi-yama and at 301m above sea level, Asuke Castle offers a breathtaking view of the small town of Asuke below. The castle is believed to have been constructed by the Suzuki clan, who wielded great power throughout the western Mikawa area’s mountainous region from the 15th century.
    The castle was abandoned in 1590 when Tokugawa Ieyasu, the famous shogun who united Japan, left the Mikawa area for the Kanto area where Tokyo is located. The castle has been reconstructed, bringing it back to its former glory, and is actually the first mountain castle to be reconstructed in all of Japan.
