Museum Of Fortress Architecture!

IMG_5051_600.psd

kanazawajo_04.psdRestoration of the turrets and armory finished in 2001. The Hishi-Yagura turret has three floors, and the other turret, Hashizume-Mon Tsuzuki-Yagura, has two. Both are perfectly designed for defense against enemies. Between both turrets stands the once-armory, Gojikken-Nagaya. The walls utilize a fireproof design of plaster over a grid pattern. Very clever! These areas are now open to the public as museums of fortress architecture, complete with computer graphics, miniatures, and excavation materials to explain the history of the structures.
