Kubota Castle - Review

So this attraction is famous for having nearly nothing to see. The castle USED to be here, but it's gone now, and all that remains is a watchtower, the Sumi Turret. Inside the watchtower is an observation area and a museum. The exhibits are based on the history of the Sakate family of samurai, who were historically 'shamed' for their participation in the losing side of the defining 1600 Sekigahara Battle. You will find suits, weapons, armour and old maps.

Kubota Castle, Akita Reviews

  • Had a lovely time here with lots of very friendly people.

  • 常陸国、今の茨城県から国替えとなった名門佐竹氏の居城です。 築城するにあたり時流的には石垣の城を建てるのが流行りだったが、敢えて東日本では専らスタンダードな土塁の城を築きました。 土塁の城の築城名手と言われた佐竹氏の矜持を感じます。 城好きのマニアでないと、ただの公園にしか見えないかもしれません。 個人的に残念なのが、隅櫓が当時のままに復元できたにもかかわらず、展望台を上に造ってしまったことで不格好な櫓になってしまったことです。

  • 久保田藩初代藩主である佐竹義宣が、秋田氏(安東氏)の居城であった湊城(秋田土崎)に入城したものの、防御の観点と手狭であったために、久保田城を築城しました。もともと、天守閣のない、また石垣も土台部分だけしかないというお城です。土塁(土手)の上を歩って、町並を見わたすのも風情があります。

  • 桜が綺麗でしたネ~☺ここの夜桜がライトアップされて最高😃⤴⤴ですョ~☺散り際や葉桜もいいですよネ🍀恋人でも要れば最高な歴史に触れながらのデートスポットですョ❤

  • 桜祭りの時は人いっぱい🌸ライトアップも綺麗。屋台いろいろ出てて楽し♫つつじ祭りは5月中旬〜下旬ころ。
