Azuchi-jo Castle, constructed in 1579 under orders from Nobunaga Oda and said to be the first high-rise wooden construction in the world, was apparently also a big hit with missionaries visiting Japan. In 1992 the 5th and 6th stories were recreated at the Seville Expo in Spain. You can also experience a recreation using cutting-edge computer graphics in the "VR Azuchi-jo" theater.
