Sumoto Castle (洲本城 Sumoto-jō?) is a castle with reconstructed keep in Sumoto on Awaji Island, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. The area is an Historic Site.[1]

Fortification began in 1525, with remodelling in stone in the 1580s. The castle was abolished in the 1630s. In 1928 the keep was rebuilt in reinforced concrete.[2]
