Shirakawa-Komine Castle

Shirakawa Komine Castle had the reputation of being a fine castle of the Oshu Checkpoint. In 2010, Komine Castle was designated as a national Historic Site. The premises features a three-story castle tower (restored in 1991) and a front gate (restored in 1994), which were faithfully reconstructed using illustrations from the Edo period. The castle is surrounded by Shiroyama Park. Located inside the park, Shirakawa Shukoen displays documents related to the Yuki clan and Abe clan which served the Shirakawa Domain. In April about 180 cherry blossom trees reach full bloom here, and in June 4,000 roses of 300 different varieties from all over the world bloom in the Shirakawa Rose Garden.
