Nagasawa Daikakuji Castle




Daikakujijō was part of a complex of fortified sites in Nagasawa Village, and a satellite fortification of Nagasawajō. It was built on a hillside overlooking the valley, but all traces of it vanished following the transformation of the area into a housing estate. The construction of a motorway and railroad may also have obliterated any ruins.
