Hikone Castle is the most famous historical site in Hikone, Shiga Prefecture, Japan. This Edo period castle traces its origin to 1603 when Ii Naokatsu ordered its construction. The keep was originally built in 1575, as part of Otsu castle, and was moved to Hikone by the Ii. It was completed in 1622. Naokatsu`s lands had been taken from him in the interval by the Tokugawa shogunate, and when his brother Naotake assumed control of the area around Omi Province, he was able to complete the castle by collecting stones from the former Sawayama castle. When the Meiji era began in 1868, many castles were scheduled to be dismantled, and only a request from the emperor himself, touring the area, kept Hikone Castle intact. Today it remains one of the oldest original-construction castles in Japan.
With over 379,000 polygons, this model includes a super-high level of detail.
Note: due to the size of this model, it is not scaled to the size of the Poser people.
