Maruoka Castle is a flatland castle built in 1576 by Shibata Katsuie for his nephew, Katsutoyo, under Oda Nobunaga's order. The castle sits on a small hill overlooking the town and is a familiar symbol to the residents. The watchtower-style castle tower has three stories and two layers. It is the oldest surviving original castle tower in Japan and has been designated as a Important Cultural Property of the country. To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the castle, a Japanese garden was built near the castle. You can find a historical museum about its past castle lords there. The castle is also known as Kasumiga Castle, and is a popular cherry blossom spot in spring with over 4,000 trees on its ground.
