Kishiwada Castle – Osaka | Travel Information

In 1334, the first Kishiwada castle was constructed in the coastal city of Kishiwada by Wada Takaie. Kishiwada Castle is also known as Chikiri Castle, and was originally built with 5 stories, it was later struck by lighting in the early 1800’s and burnt down.  The current building was built in 1954 with some slight alterations from the original design, down grading from a 5 storied castle, to a mere 3 stories. Even with the height reduction, you can still get some great views from the top observation deck, and some great views of the Osaka prefecture skyline and the Osaka bay, which is clearly visible on the western side of the castle.
