The old base of the Takami Clan before they relocated to their new base at Takami Castle.
Takamifurujō consisted of two integral baileys surrounded by earth-piled ramparts. A segment of dorui remains today, but half of the main bailey has been wiped out by the collapse of the cliffside. Not too far away from Takamifurujō is Takamijō. The "furujō" in Takamifurujō means "Old Castle" and so presumably this site was an earlier site used by the builders of Takamijō, though few details are known about its history.
