Toishi Kikubatakeno Castle

Kikubatakenojō was the final redoubt of the Toishi Castle Complex. The fort also guarded the Kongōji Pass which is located directly below it.

See Toishi Castle for more background information.

Visit Notes

Kikubatakenojō was the furthestmost fort in the Toishi Castle Complex but virtually nobody goes there now since there are no obvious ruins of a castle. It seemed to me like it may have been destroyed in landslides.
