Only one castle tower in Kagoshima

Castle is Japanese style palace. In Kagoshima, Tsurumaru Castle (also called Kagoshima Castle) was built by Iehisa Shimazu during the Edo era. However the Shogun Shimazu did not build a main castle tower, only the gate and fence. It was believed because Kagoshima is located at the south end of Japan (at that time Okinawa was not part of Japan) there was little danger of being attacked. For this reason a local business man named Chitoshi (Sennen) Ueno decided to build Kagoshima a castle. Ueno Castle (Uenojyo) became the first castle tower in Kagoshima and the symbol of Ueno Enterprise since that time.
