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.
