Sasayama Castle O-shoin
(篠山城 大書院)

It is the text from here.

Sasayama Castle Ruins is one of the finest examples of castle architecture in Japan. Today only the massive stone walls are remained from the original castle. The current O-shoin, rebuilt in April 2000, exhibits how Sasayama Castle was built and the Castle town was formed in an earlier era. Surrounded by an outer moat brimming with water, the Castle Ruins is known as one of the best spot for cherry blossoms in spring. The traditional Japanese townscape remains nearby, such as Samurai residences and temples.
