Experience the town of Kiyosu that once was

Kiyosu Castle was the starting point of local feudal lord and hero Oda Nobunaga on his campaign to conquer all of Japan at a time when it was made up of several warring factions. The castle is said to have actually existed in what is now Kiyosu Park, but the four-story castle tower with golden tiger-fish roof ornaments was rebuilt in its current location in 1989.
Experience all that Kiyosu was during the tumultuous Warring States period—from the hustle and bustle of its castle town streets to the lifestyles of its warriors—in addition to matchlock gun firings, the chance to wear samurai armor, and more. A volunteer Kiyosu Castle Warrior Brigade even graces the castle town streets from time to time.

• Trying on armor and kimono, appearances by warrior and princess staff, and picture-story shows canceled to prevent the spread of infection.

The Kiyosu Castle Warrior Brigade's enticing paper picture-story shows

Kiyosu Castle

After Nobunaga passed away, the Kiyosu Conference was held to decide his successor and was the historic happening on which Director Koki Mitani based his hit comedy movie by the same title. At the castle, clear paper picture-stories portray the way the warriors' expectations of becoming the new ruler weaved a tapestry of chaos in an enticing show. Lord Shibata Katsuie and Lady Chacha from the Kiyosu Castle Warrior Brigade act as storytellers as they relay the riveting tale. While a traditional Japanese show using pictures to help tell the story, it is absolutely action-packed.

• Shows available at the Kiyosu Conference Corner on the third floor of the castle tower in 15-min. intervals from 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, 2:00 pm, and 3:00 pm on weekends and national holidays.

Former Kiyosu Castle Ruins Park is actually a spot steeped in romanticism?

Kiyosu Castle

Take a trip a little further down the Gojo River from the current castle tower and you'll find the Former Kiyosu Castle Ruins Park on both banks. A stone monument is erected where the actual castle tower once stood at the park entrance with a small shrine worshipping Lord Oda Nobunaga a little further in. Bronze statues of Nobunaga and Princess No stand as symbols of Nobunaga's wish to unify the country and the first steps as man and wife, making it known as a "Place for New Beginnings" and a romantic spot.

Some of the most beautiful nighttime cherry blossoms

Kiyosu Castle

Gojo River and the Kiyosu Castle and Kiyosu Park areas come alive with the light pinks of Somei Yoshino cherry blossoms from late March during the Kiyosu Castle Cherry Blossom Festival. Once nighttime falls, the blossoms are illuminated and paper lanterns reflect off the river's surface in a surreal spectacle.
