天守閣、お堀とたたえる水、それを取り巻く緑、それらがきれいに保存されているのは、ありそうでない。岸和田市は南大阪で唯一、その中心部に美しい城をもつ誇らしい街である。You can reach Kishiwadajou Castle in 10~15minutes from Kishiwada station of Nankai Line.

The original structure, which was constructed in 1585 and burnt down in 1827 after being struck by lightning, was five-tiered, but this concrete museum has only three floors with high ceilings. Kishiwadajō’s elegant features...More
