|Visitor Info.||park open any time, part of the castle ruins are in fields and private property so be respectful. Best to visit during the winter. | Time Required: 40 mins|
|Notes||This is a relatively small jin'ya but with a masugata main gate and high stone walls, it is more like a castle in miniature, just without the main keep. Highly recommended site to visit if you are in the area.|
