Kageyama Castle (Mikawa)

From Jcastle.info



Kageyamajō was likely built in 1448 by Naruse Kunihira after he relocated there from Kidojō. The Naruse Clan are most well-known among castle fans for becoming the lords of Inuyamajō, starting with Naruse Masanari, five generations later. It seems that at some point, after about three generations, Kageyamajō was replaced by Mutsunajō to the south.

See also Mutsuna Castle (Mikawa).

Visit Notes

No ruins remain of Kageyamajō but there is a small hill here on which the fort was likely centered. The area is now housing. I suppose if we squint hard enough it could look like a castle.
