The area around the main towers and the Hon-Maru Goten was destroyed by fire for three days before the Seinan Rebellion began.

The present main towers were rebuilt in 1960 to restore the castle’s exterior. The larger main tower has 6 stories with a basement and about 30 meters above the stone fence, and the amaller main tower has 4 stories with a basement and about 19 meters in height.
