Uchigashima Tameuji was commanded by the Ashikaga shogun in the mid 1400's to move to the Shirakawa area to control the rich mining operations in the area. Uchigashima established his main castle, Kaerigumo Castle, about 6km from Shirakawa and setup a network of smaller castles in the area including Shirakawa Castle. In 1585, there was a great earthquake and the entire Uchigashima clan and the castle town of more than 300 homes was destroyed in a landslide. Yamashita Ujikatsu who was the commander of Shirakawa Castle at the time moved to Nagoya and worked for the Tokugawa on the construction of Nagoya Castle.


Visit Notes

If you go to Shirakawa you'll surely go to the lookout point atop the hill/mountain overlooking the village. The castle is on this ridge so you should visit while you're here. I wouldn't go to Shirakawa just for the castle though. I've included a number of photos of the thatch houses just because they're so fantastic.
