From the Kamakura Period the Nakazawa Clan held sway over the area and it is thought that they may have built Takadajō. Takami Sonbē, a relative of the Nakazawa, was castellan at one point in the Sengoku Period. Neighbourhood names in the village such as "Outer Fort", "Moat" and "Castle Field" survive.

Visit Notes

Now a small and pretty park, Takadajō features dorui (earthen ramparts) and what looks like a trench next to a yaguradai, although the latter may just be wishful thinking on my part. Either way, there is a mound of earth here with a monument stone on top reading "Old Castle". There are blossoming trees here which would surely be very lovely at full bloom.
