Higashi Maruoka Castle (Koka)

See Maruoka Castle for details

Visit Notes

The castle is directly parallel to Maruoka Castle across the road but there is also a small ravine that makes it difficult to cross. The best way is to go along side the cemetery and climb up and to the left to reach the castle from behind. The embankments at this castle are quite impressive and larger than Maruoka Castle, but the castle itself does not seem to be as well developed with just one main bailey and a small trench and entrance towards the downslope side of the castle only.
