    [First, learn the character of Akechi Mitsuhide]
    Fukuchiyama Castle was rebuilt into a modern castle as a front-line base for the capture of the West when Akechi Mitsuhide settled Tamba at the behest of Nobunaga around 1579. After that, the castle tower was rebuilt in 1986.
    However, the stone wall remains as it was when it was first built, and Fukuchiyama Castle is the only place in Japan where you can see the stone wall of the Mitsuhide era. The precious stone walls made of diversion stones, such as the Hokyointo and the Gorinto, are very spectacular and must-see.
