Shiroishi Castle

Shiroishi Castle was the castle of the Katakura clan, a family of retainers of the Date clan. Although torn down during the Meiji Restoration, part of the castle tower was faithfully restored in 1995 using good-quality Japanese wood, such as Aomori white cedar. The fragrance of the wood leaves an impression. From the castle tower, visitors can see the city center of the castle town, Shiroishi.
