Fodor's Review

This castle stands today because of one man's determination and wealth. The first castle built here was destroyed by a rainstorm in 1612, before it was completed. More than 300 years later, local resident Katsu Kawasaki financed a replica that sits atop vertiginous 98-foot stone walls—be careful when it's windy. Kawasaki also paid for the Haiku Poetry Master's Pavilion, built in memory of Japan's famous wandering poet, Matsuo Basho, which stands near the castle in Ueno Park.
