Obi Castle

A castle town where the old townscape of Japan remains

Obi is a castle town that flourished under the rule of the Ito Clan (descendants of the influential Fujiwara Clan) over 280 years from around the 16th century. Many splendid gated samurai residences surrounded by stone walls and mortar fences can still be found here. These provide a reminder of the days when samurai were present. It is known as a famous spot for cherry blossoms in the spring. We recommend talking a walk here in this period.
