Takamatsu Castle in Kagawa Prefecture is also known as Tamamo Castle. The castle was built in 1590 by Ikoma Chikamasa, the first feudal lord of the Takamatsu Domain. Fifty-four years later the castle and fief were given to the Matsudaira clan. Being built on the shores of Takamatsu, the castle is well known as one of the three mizujiro (water castles) of Japan.
