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 Reviews & Ratings
nice place to exercise and enjoy the beautiful snow scenery
It's highest place on 千秋公園 and can get great overviews around Akira city, inside this building is a lot of thing in Edo period.
Nice park, and quiet. The rebuilt turret has some history displays (low entry fee), nice for a stroll - I like it.
Nice park to stroll. Beautiful during Cherry Blossoms season.
Had a lovely time here with lots of very friendly people.
