It was a rebuilt main keep of the castle. New but wonderful. Worth visit.
You can enjoy some photos with old day's wear in the front open space.

The 🍁 castle was rebuilt as a concrete reconstruction in the 1960s. In renovation works completed in 2011, the color of the roof tiles was reverted from grey to the original red, a unique color among Japanese castles. Visitors can climb to the top floor of the castle keep and look out onto the surrounding city. The inside of the building is an interesting museum with attractive displays about the history of the castle and the samurai lifestyle.🏯🌸

Tsuruga Castle is surrounded by Tsuruga Castle Park, which is rather impressive. The park has well tended lawns and cherry trees, which are particularly attractive when they are in bloom around mid April. The surrounding moat and stone walls, which previously served defensive purposes, now contribute to the pleasant atmosphere of the park.

Aizuwakamatsu castle is really nice to see. Inside of the castle, explanations on the history of Aizu and particularly the Boshin war is given. Aizu has a great history, and the description given is a good introduction to Tohoku, and more generally japanese history. I thus recommend to visit !
The 360° view from the top is also impressive, and a nice photo spot.
In addition, there is a tea ceremony house to visit, with the possibility to enjoy some tea and relax a bit...

Looks like a replica not really succeeded. The parks are quite nice.
