279: Motosu Castle (Castle at the border to hold the middle of the city)
Motosu CastleThe castle was in Fujikawaguchiko-machi, Minamitsuru-gun, Yamanashi Prefecture.
It is a mountain fortress built in Shiroyama near the Lake Motosu, one of Fuji Five lakes.
The exact time of the castle is unknown, but in the first half of the 16th century astronomicalMr. TakedaPresent as a castle,Genkichi SpringThere is a record of the person that remains.
The middle of theIt is thought that it functions as a castle of the border security, that is, a castle of the boundary to suppress.
For this reason, there are many stone base ruins which are considered to have defended the highway at the foot of the mountain.

The branch from Route 139 (Fuji Panorama Line) to the former Kamikuisshiki Junior High School (closing) is a landmark.

The stone base to the northeast side can be accessed from the entrance of the old Kamikuisshiki Junior high School and exit to the Shiroyama entrance to the right.
[Left] This is the entrance of Shiroyama. It is near the national road, but there is no place to stop the car beside this.
The altitude is raised at a stretch at the beginning of the climb. Can you see the red car below?
There is a space to stop the car on the side of the road slightly north of the entrance, but the other place is sail fast, so parking is dangerous.
It is likely to stop because the car does not pass at the former Kamikyuisshiki Junior high school now.

There seems to be Horikiri still on the ridge ahead, but the main part of the castle area seems to be this far.
[Left] There is also a guide, but it seems to be thought that there is one that the Takeda army built to monitor an important military road because the masonry and the method of the Motosu castle are similar.
RightMasugata ToraguchiStructure such as the defense mechanism and the idea of the castle is exactly the same.
It can be said that it is a typical Sengoku period mountain Castle prepared for the battle to hold an important highway.
How about Fuji five lakes sightseeing? I didn’t see anyone.
