Take a close look at the wall, you can see small openning which are called SAMA that served as a safe "window" to watch the outside. More importantly they were a safe place from which to shoot arrows, rifles or to lance enemies trying to breach the castle.

Sama designed for arrows were generally rectangles and those for firearms were circles or triangles

You can also see the ATOMIZER WELL....When Tokugawa house were under attacks , the fog which was release from the well envelops the castle and attack was prevented and the castle was saved ..

This legend still remains calling this castle " cloud fog castle"
