Tange Fort

History

Tange Fort was built by Oda Nobunaga to control the roads into Narumi Castle. Tange Fort specifically prevented the Imagawa from circumventing the other forts and slipping in from the north. This was Nobunagwa's first major stop along the route to the Battle of Okehazama.

Visit Notes

Apparently there is a sign at Seisuiji Temple with a brief history of the fort, like at the other sites, but I could not find it. There were a lot of people at both temples for something so I tried to be brief and not intrude. If you're on foot I'm not sure it's worth the long walk unless you want the full Okehazama experience. At the time, there were 2 markers on Google Maps for Tange Fort, one was at the Narumi Shrine just to the east of this site. At first, I wasted a fair amount of time walking around the roads outside and inside Narumi Shrine looking for the sign that is apparently at Seisuiji. This second marker at Narumi Shrine now seems to be gone, potentially saving you some troubles. Regardless, the original fort likely extended from Seisuiji & Komyozenji to Narumi Shrine.
