Tateyama Castle

Tateyama Castle (Tateyama-jo) was built by the daimyo Satomi Yoshiyasu in the latter half of the 16th century. It stands at the top of a small hill. Many castles which symbolized the samurai were destroyed throughout the country in the latter half of the 19th century when the government dominated by the samurai came to a close, and this castle met the same fate. The existing three-tiered, four-storied donjon was built in 1982 as an annex to the Tateyama City Museum. Many materials relating to the lengthy historical novel Nanso Satomi Hakkenden, written by the great 19th-century novelist Takizawa Bakin and set in this region, are exhibited here.
