During its full glory Okayama Castle was an advanced and extensive complex featuring 35 turrets and 21 gates, but nowadays only one of the original turrets remain, together with the stone walls and a reconstruction of the main keep. The present keep was built out of reinforced concrete in 1966 as a perfect replica of the original one and houses a permanent exhibition on the history and construction of the castle.
