Visitor Info. park open any time, it's also about a 20 min walk from Imai Castle. | Time Required: 20 mins
Notes While this is a nice little neighborhood park, if it weren't for the signs I would have had a very difficult time guessing there was a castle on the site. There's isn't much to see and I would only recommend it if you are in the area and have some transportation readily available. It's probably not worth the walk from nearby stations. I stopped by while cycling from Imai Castle to Katsunuma Castle.
History Some earlier records claim the castle belonged to the Hirayama clan, but the Hirayama clan were not leaders in this area so it would not have been logical. Some records from Hojo Ujiteru mention a Fujihashi Kosaburo as being a retainer of the Mita clan who were powerful in the area. This may have been a fortification manned by the Fujihashi, but little else is known.
