Recommended tourist spot 1: Tsuruga Castle

Renowned as an impregnable castle, Tsuruga Castle survived the fierce attacks of the new government forces during the Boshin War. It was rebuilt in September 1965, and in the spring of 2011, it became the only castle tower in Japan still clad in red roof tiles from the end of the Edo period.

Tsuruga Castle will be renovated in the spring of 2023. It has been reborn as a cultural tourism guide "castle" where you can experience the "stories" hidden in history using digital technology and enjoy it with all five senses. You can experience VR, where historical buildings are brought to life, and experience the stories hidden in history as if you have transcended time.
