It is the stronghold of Mr. Akamatsu who has established the position as a famous tribe from the Kamakura period, and has served as the guardian of the important country of four positions and Harima under the Muromachi shogunate. It is a typical medieval castle, and may be selected as a personal Japan 100 castle. It is a castle that I thought.
