A castle base in control of Mikawa Bay

Tahara Castle was built in 1480 by Toda Munemitsu, a military commander during the Muromachi period, and became his base to rule over Mikawa Bay. The castle stands on the Atsumi Peninsula making it a strong force against attacks from enemy forces. At one time, the castle came under the control of Ikeda Terumasa, and it is thought that both it and its castle town saw significant development during this period.
The castle now serves as a history museum where precious objects such as national important cultural properties and other important relics are on display. Also on display are materials related to Watanabe Kazan, a retainer in former Tahara Province who achieved fame as a painter and scholar of Western culture.
