Fushimi Momoyama Castle

Fushimi Momoyama Castle 桃山城 空撮 dji inspire 1 Kyoto Prefecture, Japan Fushimi Momoyama Castle (Fushimi Momoyama-jo) was built as a retreat for the hegemon Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who ruled Japan in the latter half of the 16th century. It was completely demolished under the orders of the shogunate of Edo which began to rule Japan in the 17th century, however, and its building structures were donated to temples and shrines in the city of Kyoto. It is said that the place name Momoyama ("Peach Mountain") came about as many peach trees were planted around the site of the castle. The existing Fushimi Momoyama Castle was built in 1964 on the site of the demolished prototype.The mock castle you see in the pictures here was built on this spot because the original location of Fushimi Castle is on Imperial property and cannot be entered.It seems Fushimi Castle was never destined to have a successful life. The original Fushimi Castle was founded in 1594 by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Just one year later it was destroyed in a great earthquake. Hideyoshi commanded another castle to be built near this location. He died a couple years after its completion. Tokugawa Ieyasu then moved into the castle which was destroyed in a battle before the battle of Sekigahara. He rebuilt the castle again only to have it dismantled as a part of his own one castle per country laws. Some of the yagura gained new life as the Fushimi Yagura at Fukuyama Castle and the Fushimi Yagura at Osaka Castle. Now it seems this reconstruction has also met its own end. www.jcastle.info dji inspire1で桃山城を空撮
