The castle is thought to have been the residence of a local clan, perhaps the Kamimaki Clan.

Visit Notes

Kamimakifurujō, also called Shirobayashijō, is now a park named for the castle. The ruin is situated on a promontory overlooking the alluvial plain of the Ina Valley. The shukuruwa (main bailey) is located at the terminus of this peninsula of cliff, and horikiri (cuttings into the ridgeline) create moats separating three baileys, although these trenches are hard to make out today. What is easier to see is an obiguruwa (ring bailey) wrapped around the shukuruwa.
