Ozu’s Flying Castle

Forget the cherry blossoms and the flashy Tokyo hotels, because starting this April, for the first time ever, it’s possible to rent out an Edo period castle in the heart of Japan—and get the shogun-style treatment while you’re there.

Dating back to 1617, Ozu Castle is set in the town of Ozu on the western side of Shikoku island, and sits atop a hill, encircled by the winding Hijikawa River.

After a careful restoration, the castle is now ready to welcome incoming vacationers in the same way a shogun would have received a visiting lord to his castle—complete with a re-enactment ceremony that rolls out the proverbial red carpet.

Adding to the exclusivity, only thirty such private stays are being offered between April 2020 and April 2021.
