During Meiji era, the government passed on Haijo Rei, a regulation to abandon castles, and the Katsuyama Castle was destroyed. Although stone fences and Tenshu, the keep tower,was still be found in Showa era, only a few gates and a stone stele remain to this day.

There is a Katsuyamajo Museum, which is known for the tallest iconic Tenshu, near the
Katsuyama Castle ruin, but it has nothing to do with Katsuyama Castle.
