Oike Fort

From Jcastle.info



Played a part in Takeda Shingen's siege of Haibarajō; likely constructed at that time.

Visit Notes

Oike-toride is a small toride ("fort") site located on a small hill on the plain beneath Haibarajō and adjacent to Kuwagatahara-toride on the larger Nakayama ("middle mountain"). The hill is leveled atop with a small main bailey partially surrounded by what looks to me like a koshiguruwa (hip bailey). The base of the hill is surrounded by marshy area with a rivulet running through, possibly formerly a moat.
