In the early Edo Period, 1598, a feudal Daimyo lord, Ii Naomasa, moved his residence castle to this castle which was being under constraction and named it Takasaki-jo. It was surrendered to the Meiji Government in 1873 and demolished. Today, its Inui Yagura (Inui Turret) and Higashi-mon (East Gate), which were restored later, can be seen and its outer moat became a popular spot for cherry blossom viewing. On the site there are a few cultural facilities including the Gunma Music Center, along with the 21-storeyed building of the Takasaki City Hall, which has an observation lobby on its top floor (free of charge).

Nothing much to see

殆ど何も残っていない在りし日の高崎城を偲ぶ、数少ない場所の一つです。ここにある乾櫓は小さいですがオリジナルの高崎城伝来の物で、明治に廃城になる際に民間に払い下げられ農家の納屋として生き残っていたそうです。それを昭和54年に現在地に移築復元したとのこと。
本来のあった場所は、この三の丸ではなく図書館の先にある高崎流通センター及びNTT周辺にあった本丸で、すぐそばには天守に相当する巨大な御三階櫓もありました。もっとも今は何も無いですけど。
どうも群馬県の城は前橋城もそうですが、石垣ではなく土で出来た城なので、造成がしやすいせいか跡形もないことが多いです。「城」は地方のアイデンティティの主張や地元統合の象徴として最適なので、それがない自治体は羨ましがっている、と聞いた事がありますが、この雑な扱いは何とも・・。

さらに、この乾櫓の復元には少々、というかかなり問題がありまして・・。
昔からの高崎市の住人なら知っているでしょうが、元々ここに石垣などありませんでした。高崎城は関東に典型的な土塁と水堀で構成された城です。他の人の口コミを見ると「石垣が残っている」という記載も多く、そう思う方が自然でこれは行政の罪は重いですね。
石垣なんて残ってなんかいませんから!、それ土塁だと見栄えが悪いから、存在しないものを勝手に後世の人間が付け加えただけですから!。一城郭ファンとして今からでも遅くないので、旧状に復する事を望みます。

The record of the early modern days related to Takasaki Castle was as follows.
This area is a major point of traffic at the junction of Nakasendo and Mikuni Kaido, and a castle was needed to monitor it. The following year, Keisei 3 (1598), Naomasa Ii moved from Minowa Castle to Takasaki Castle, which was being built. Upon entering the castle, Naomasa calls this area "Takasaki" (with the suggestion that "Pine may die, but the height is unlimited" by Kaizan Ryuzan Eitan Kasho of Etoku-ji Temple, which was built by Naomasa under Minowa Castle) It is said to have been named. Moved townhouses and shrines and temples from Minowa and built a castle town.

Takasaki Castle is a castle built by Naomasa Ii. Naomasa moves to Sawayama after Sekigahara. It was good that it was better and smaller than I expected.

Historically, Japan's efforts in preserving historic sites are evident.
