SpotCastle Keeps and Turrets

The remaining two keeps were reconstructed in 1960. Ichi-no-Tenshu (the first keep) is home to property belonging to the Kato and Hosokawa families. Uto yagura turret is the only multi-layered turret that survived the Seinan war and is called the third keep. It demonstrates the structure of the castle and retains the atmosphere of the time when the castle was built.
