Ozu Castle offers a panoramic view of the city centre and its picturesque cityscape. The castle town, which escaped the air raids during World War II, still has many old buildings standing. In particular, the Garyu Sanso is a masterpiece of Japanese beauty, and has been listed in the Michelin Guide. At the Ozu Washi Kaikan, you can enter a washi paper factory, a traditional craft that has been around for more than 1,000 years, and watch skilled craftsmen at work right before your eyes.
