History

Please refer to details on the Miyao Castle page.

The fortress at To-no-oka was established for Sue Harukata's siege on Miyao Castle. After a great defeat, Harukata committed seppuku and the fortress was likely razed when Mori Motonari cleansed the battlefield.

Visit Notes

There is nothing left to see but if you know the history of the Battle of Miyajima it is a fairly interesting site to visit to see just how close it is to Miyao Castle and Itsukushima Shrine and to imagine how the battle unfolded.

Whether this really qualifies as a castle or not, it is an historically significant fort and would not be appropriate to post on the Miyao Castle page. I have sources listing it separately so I will too.
