Kaminoyama Castle Folk Museum

Kaminoyama Castle Folk Museum かみのやまじょうきょうどしりょうかん
Seasonal Scenery Shows up on
Renowned Castle of Dewa
Kaminoyama-jo Castle used to be praised as “Renowned Castle of Dewa.” After 290 years since being tore down by the order of the feudal government, it came back to life again as folk museum.
The exhibit hall on the first floor was renovated with the theme of “Four seasons, history, and culture of Kaminoyama” on the 30th anniversary of the museum in 2012 and the exhibition increased satisfaction.
The castle tower has a view of Zao Peaks and the row of houses in downtown which you can feel the flavor of Onsen village.

Our volunteers for tourists guide you through Kaminoyama-jo Castle. Please feel free to ask for a guide.
