Notes Best reached by private transportation. Nice little park, beautiful view of the valley below. Ongoing work. The yagura you see in the pictures is a mock yagura.

History Haga Shichiro built the original fortification on this site around 1261. It was taken over by the Nakamura clan who ruled over this area until the end of the Sengoku Period. In 1580 the castle fell to Hideyoshi and was abandoned.
