There is not a good guide board for the castle lover, and it is guided as a walking course. I went like an arrow and took a different route on the way back.
The castle itself is a structure in which the main enclosure of the highest place is centered, and a tune ring develops in each ridge of Higashinishi North and south.
Zen Chang Temple from the mouth, I will attach to the melody of the southern Ridge.

When it exceeds this, it is thought that it was a mechanism to attack the enemy who was still stranded by Horikiri through the soil base because it is horikiri and vertical moat.

The Red Demon, Blue Demon, and Araki Demon are the generals of Tamba.
The role that Mr. Momii played in the fellow seems was large in its own way, but I think that the existence of only Blue demon is not confirmed.
