Nishitakeno-maru (Iita-maru) yagura (turret), Kumamoto Castle 西竹野丸 (飯田丸)5階櫓 

A turret on the SW part of the Honmaru section of Kumamoto Castle is a recent reconstruction and is at the top of some of the highest walls on the castle. The main tower is in the background.

The wall under the turret to the right (behind the tree) collapsed in the April 2016 earthquake leaving only 8 stones to support the 5-ton structure, but they held.
