Kochi Castle dates back to 1748, is one of the few original castles in Japan. It is particularly great because all the structures are original and intact, which is not the case for most of the other original castles. Upon entry, you will find that the castle is actually 5 stories high. Inside there are exhibits and replicas of the castle and surrounding area as it was in the feudal times. The view from the castle window of the city a midst the surrounding mountains is beautiful!
