Castles in Japan were both symbols of power and military strongholds. Designed to withstand enemy attacks, they were built using the wisdom of their day.
In this episode, we approach the secrets hidden in Hikone Castle from various angles. We follow a group of soldiers as they attack the castle and attempt to clear the bridge, hill paths, and gates leading to the main keep. CG and drones are used to introduce the defensive features that lay in wait for them. We'll also recreate a special wall called taiko-kabe, and test its strength for the first time ever.
