Miyanoue Castle (Saku)

From Jcastle.info



Miyanōejō is listed in the Kōhakusaiki (高白斎記), a Sengoku period historical document, as one of the castles which fell to Takeda Shingen over a series of days in 1543. It fell a few days after Unnokuchijō and the day before Maeyamajō. It is again referred to in 1548, but this time as an encampment. Miyanōejō is thought to have been used as a fortified look-out and as a place to lodge troops. Any ruins of Miyanōejō were destroyed with the construction of Kōmi High School on the site.
