Hajikamigōjō was a satellite castle of Nirengijō. Due west, it was located on a small plateau. Hajikamigō Castle is said to have been the residence of the chief retainer at Nirengi Castle.

Visit Notes

Hajikamigōjō is a minor castle site on private property. Some castle-bloggers report dorui (earthen rampart) remains, but I couldn’t find anything solid by just going around the block. The site is now an old home surrounded by parcels of land which have been sold off and developed, including by a block of flats.
