Oka Castle itself was torn down as part of the Meiji restoration, as with many other castles in Japan, as part of destroying symbols of the old feudal system. However the stone wall foundation still exists and is a popular tourist site. Found on top of a hill, the ruins offer a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. The ruins are the most popular popular in spring and autumn for their stunning sakura blossom and autumn foliage displays respectively.
