Originally Koga castle was built along the Watarase River, but unfortunately it was torn down without a trace because of the renovation work of the river. However, a monument called Kogaro inner citadel ruins is left on the bank of the river. Because there is not a chance to see it easily, it may be interesting to look around for a walk the Watarase River.
