Inuyama Castle is located in Inuyama City ,Aichi Prefecture . Built in the 17th century, the castle is unique in that its central castle tower is typical of Muromachi-period (1338-1573) style design.
The early 17th century was a period when firearms were coming into heavy use. Most castles of the period were built with many exterior walls and moats to prevent bombardment of the castle itself by cannon or rifle fire. However, in the Muromachi period firearms were not yet in widespread use, so emphasis was placed on the early discovery of approaching enemies.
Inuyama Castle's tower stands exposed on an 80-meter high three-sided cliff above the Kiso River, and a watchtower, called "Bourou," takes up the top floor, giving an unobstructed view of the Kiso River and Nobi Plain. Inuyama castle is a rare example of the Muromachi style and for this reason, it has been designated a National Treasure.
