Wakamatsu castle is the Japanese castle which was in Outemachi, Aizuwakamatsu-shi, Fukushima. I’m generally “Tsuruga-jo” by localness and am often called “Aizuwakamatsu-jo” besides the localness. It’s made Kurokawa-jo and Aizu-jo by document history.

That seven generation Tadamori in Mr. Ashina built Kurokawa castle in 1384 originates. It’s said to be “impregnable Meijo” because a confinement one month castle didn’t fall before a violent attack of new governmental forces by a war of boshin. It was restored by many donations in September, 1965. It was the only donjon in Japan where a red roof tile in Bakumatsu age is worn in spring in 2011. An exhibition hall made April a year, 2015 and the 50th anniversary of donjon reconstruction commemoration, and was remodeled completely. A trench and an earthwork are left and the whole castle is designated as a national ruin.
