Oshigane Castle was built by the Tada Clan, also called the Oshigane Clan. It seems that the residence built by the Tada later became a temple called Seidenji. Now the area is a residential neighbourhood.

Visit Notes

Nothing remains of Oshiganejō. On the site is a small park called "Honjō", as in "Main Castle". There is a small mound at the back with graves atop.
