Okayama Castle was constructed in 1597 by daimyo Hideie Ukita. The black siding on the walls of the castle tower gave the castle in those days a distinctive appearance. The current tower is a restoration built in 1966. The interior of the castle has been made into a museum where you can also try on some kimono for free.
