History

Itabashi Castle was supposedly the home and castle of the Itabashi Clan, another retainer or branch of the Toshima Clan. It was likely abandoned when the Toshima were defeated by Ota Dokan.


Visit Notes

The castle grounds today are the Chomyoji Temple and an elementary school. In front of the school (behind the gate) is a proper stone pillar and sign for the castle but I could not get in and didn't want to look like some weird creep leaning over the fence taking pictures of a school in session!
