Next 100 Castles


Next 100 Castles / 続百名城

This is a subtype of Designations

Following on the success of the original Top 100 most famous castles, published in 2006 by the Japan Castle Foundation, the same organization has released a list of the Next 100 Most Famous Castles. I'm a little disappointed that they kept the same criteria insisting that every prefecture be represented and no more than 4 for any one prefecture. Some very good castles have surely been looked over while some unworthy and mostly unknown castles have been included. The castles documented on this site are linked below.
