Ujo Togenkyo

Views: time(s)

The jet-black Okayama Castle looms in the darkness of night, wrapped in a mystical atmosphere!

Okayama Castle was built by Ukita Hideie, a daimyo lord during the Sengoku period. The black-lacquered boards of its exterior earned it the nickname, “Crow Castle (Ujo).”
The light-up event at the castle, “Ujo Togenkyo,” aims to envelop the castle in soft lighting, and extends up to the castle’s highest tower and surroundings. The event takes place during Golden Week and periods in summer and fall, combining paper lanterns, hanging lanterns, and candles for a Japanese atmosphere that can be sensed only here.
