Visit Notes

Koide-Uchijō is a significant remnant of the Koide Clan network of fortifications with castle ruins in the form of large, impressive karabori, and some obvious bailey spaces. It seems the site was used as a residence in the outer bailey; it sits between Fubukikaitojō to the northeast and Yakushidōjō to the southeast which together guarded it. The site is now forest and rice paddies. I saw a fox in the middle bailey.

  • Steep ramparts and dry moat
  • Deep Karabori (dry moat) / trench
