K-9 Odawara castle & Enoura Observatory
Odawara Castle was built in the 15th century, and after becoming the residence of Hojo, who was the lord of the Sengoku period, it was gradually expanded as a base for Kanto rule. Then, to defence of Hideyoshi’s attack, he built a 9-kilometer sōgamae (outermost enclosure), it boasted the largest castle in Japan in the Middle Ages.
In the battle of Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s siege of Odawara Castle that began in April 1590, the fifth castle owner, Ujinao, opened Odawara Castle bloodlessly, seeking the help of castle soldiers and lords, preparing to trade his own life. It was the surrender of the castle, which shows the deep bond of the heart that he thought of the lord.
The current castle tower was reconstructed in 1960 with a reinforced concrete structure based on the templates and drawings made in the Edo period.
Enoura area is a valuable natural heritage that holds an exceptional landscape overlooking Sagami Bay with the steep Hakone surrounding mountain in the background. Taking this nature as a backdrop, each building is arranged in harmony with the garden.
Even though it is called a weather station, it is not equipped with observation equipment. It is an art garden where various objects and buildings are spread all over the vast site.
Visitors can stroll around the garden as they please, and feel, think and immerse themselves in various ways. It is an art that is different from general museums and galleries.
