Joumurafuru Castle


Joumurafurujou (1).JPG


Little is known about this castle but it is paired with nearby Ina Joumura Castle, being the older of the two and of a more basic construction. Clans which migth've controlled it include the Takada Clan, the Kuribayashi Clan and the Zengomi Clan.

Visit Notes

The ruins of Jōmurafurujō can be taken in in a single glance since the single bailey appears as a mound arising out of rice paddies. Jōmurajō, the new castle, is built into the cliffline and is visible from here. The main (and only) bailey is now a field with a few tombstones at the end.
