Kawagoe Castle Honmaru Palace

The Kawagoe Castle was built in the first year of Chōroku (1457) under the command of the vassals, Ōta Dōshin and Dōkan (father and child) for Ōgigaya Uesugi Mochitomo to compete against Koga Ashikaga Shigeuji. In the Edo period, it was of utmost importance to protect the north side of Edo, which is why the top vassal traditionally become the lord of the castle. The current building is constructed in the first year of Kaei, in 1848. After two and a half years of restoration, it is now open to the public.
