Kōchi Castle is a castle located in Kochi, Kochi Prefecture, Japan. Construction was completed in 1611. Much of the original fortress burned down in 1727; it was reconstructed between 1729 and 1753 in the original style.
The castle underwent major restoration from 1948 to 1959. Though no battles were fought at the castle, it is noteworthy because the castle is the original structure, and not a post-war replica, like many others in japan.
NOTE: There are only 12 castles left in Japan that are considered as “original” !!
It is also the only castle in Japan to retain both its original main keep, and its palace, the residence of the local Daimyo. In fact, it is the only castle to have all the original buildings in the honmaru, or innermost ring of defense, still standing.
