Takada jo sanju yagura (Takada Castle Three-story-Turret)

The castle was built in 1614, but burnt down in 1870. So this symbolic three-story-turret was rebuilt in 1993 as a memorial project for the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Joetsu city. When it was rebuilt, architects reviewed ancient pictures and did detailed research with paleography and further excavation, since the castle is one of the designated historical sites in Niigata prefecture. The size is almost full-scaled according to the 'Takada castle blueprint' drawn when Inaba Masamichi was the feudal lord (around 1685), and the exterior of the building was completed with reference to 'Honmaru Goten Ezu (The picture of the dungeon)' drawn when Matsudaira Mitsunaga was the lord (around 1624). In the turret, the 1st and 2nd floors have exhibitions of materials of Takada castle, and the 3rd floor has an observatory where you can enjoy a panoramic view of Takada city.
