Added Inatsuke Castle, Jindaiji Castle, Shakujii Castle

I'm working through my backlog of castle visits from the last 6 months. Today I've added three new castles from the Tokyo area: Jindaiji Castle, Inatsuke Castle, and Shakujii Castle.

There is not so much to see at each one of them but they each have their place in Tokyo history and something interesting for each. Ota Dokan was one of the most famous people in the Tokyo (Edo) area before the arrival of the Tokugawa. Inatsuke Castle became Joshoji, the funerary temple of Ota Dokan. Ota Dokan attacked Shakujii Castle, a holdout of the Toshima clan, and finally, Jindaiji Castle was meant to protect Ogigayatsu Uesugi lands from the Hojo but the Hojo just routed around it to attack Matsuyama Castle instead.
