The original structure, built between 1610 to 1614 by Tokugawa Ieyasu for his ninth son, was levelled in WWII. Today's castle is a concrete replica (with elevator) completed in 1959. At each end of the roof you can see the 3m-long gilded shachi-hoko – legendary creatures possessing a tiger's head and carp's body. The museum houses treasures, an armour collection and the histories of the Oda, Toyotomi and Tokugawa families. Within the castle grounds, the beautiful year-round garden, Ninomaru-en (二の丸園) has a number of pretty teahouses.
