Nishitakeno-maru (Iita-maru) yagura (turret), Kumamoto Castle  西竹野丸 (飯田丸)5階櫓
Some of the highest walls at Kumamoto Castle. It was beseiged in 1877 by Satsuma troops, and even though much was burnt down, the Imperial troops prevailed and the Satsuma retreated to Nobeoka to be defeated again. The museum inside the main donjon has a lot of artifacts from this battle.
