Sumpu Castle Park Hitsujisaru-yagura (Hitsujisaru Turret)
Sunpujo Park HitsuJisaruyagura  

April 2nd 2014, Sumpu Castle Ninomaru Hitsuji Yagura was restored for the first time in 160 years. With the height of about 14m, it is a two-layer, three-story sumiyagura (an armory or a hut that serves as the defense basis at the time of a battle which is located at the corner). Inside the yagura, in order to make it easier to look at the building structure, some floorboards are replaced by glass. You can see the structure by removing a part of the second and third floor floorboards. In addition, there are video exhibits of the history and tower construction as well as 3D scope (extra charge) created by MR (Mixed Reality) technology.
