Marugame Castle

Kagawa, Shikoku

Marugame Castle (Marugame-jo) was completed by the daimyo Ikoma Chikamasa, who governed the present Kagawa Prefecture at the beginning of the 17th century. The castle used to be surrounded by a double moat. The outer moat has now been filled in, but the inner moat near the donjon remains as it was in the old days, and the donjon has been designated an Important Cultural Property. Visitors are greeted by the three-tiered donjon after climbing up a steep incline with a view of the beautifully curved stone walls.
