Higashi Wada Castle

From Jcastle.info



Minochi-Wadajō is otherwise known as Higashi-Wadajō (East Wada Castle), and is paired with Nishi-Wadajō (West Wada Castle).

Visit Notes

I was hopeful that I might find some ruins of Wadajō since the site is now a park, but really it is a sports park with large stadia. Probably it was developed around the time Nagano hosted the Winter Olympics. Any castle ruins that might've been were obliterated at that time.
