Kiriyamashiro [Part I] the ruins of Kitabatake, a samurai garden in the Muromachi period

Kiriyama Castle (Taki Castle) is the home of Mr. Kitabatake who was the Sengoku feudal lord of Ise, and it was an impregnable mountain castle located along the highway connecting Ise and Yamato. The multi-Qi is read as “it is”. At the foot of the mountain is the Castle Hall (Kitabatake-kan ruins) lined, and the Mount Kiriyamashiro was a packed castle surrounded by a pass. Mr. Kitabatake has taken over the Kitabatake family in the way of killing the former Kitabatake clan by the invasion of Oda Nobunaga in 1569, and the Nobuo of the second son (Buto) was sent as adopted by Mr. Kitabatake, and Nobunaga became a stronghold in the Fog castle. Kitabatake Shrine is built in the ruins of the mountain, and samurai Gardens exist. The ruins of the medieval fortress sheltered by the Earth base and Horikiri remain well on the mountain far.

The trail to the Kiriyamashiro is next to Kitabatake-kan (kitabatake shrine) on the foothills. After seeing the splendid excursion garden that the shrine is visited first, and remaining still as Mr. Kitabatake age, it is possible to capture the castle.

kiriyama-1416The surrounding map which was pasted to the wall of the restroom beside the Torii. There is a garden and Kitabatake shrine beyond the Torii, and there seems to be Kiriyama castle ruins on the mountaintop when going up the mountain path from the front of the garden.

kiriyama-1417It suppresses feelings to be suppressed, and it sees it first of all because there was an explanation board of the Castle Pavilion ruins of a multi-qi Kitabatake. It seems to be “Taqi Kitabatake Castle Ruins” in the ruins of the base of the mountain, the castle of the Urayama, and Fog mountain ruins in the mountaintop.

Mr. Ise Kitabatake’s ancestor Kitabatake (Akakiyoshi) seems to be a younger brother. It is unclear why the statue of the sensible family is here… Kitabatake Shrine?

kiriyama-1426c-1471The statue of a public figure kitabatake. It is said that the statue of the sensible family stands in the Abenino shrine in the Izumi country Sakai which is the place of the last fight.

kiriyama-1432There was an explanatory board about the garden in front of the gate. Among the gardens of the same age (medieval Muromachi period-warring States period), it is very rare that it remained without being buried. It is a man-like garden of the warlords favorite in the mountain with the scenery of the pond and the rock and the lake. Hmmmm.

kiriyama-1435Into the garden. The big tree of more than 400 years old is not visible on the other side, but according to the story of Miyushi, at that time there was no such big tree, and it was a splendid garden with the mountains over the pond and the Chikuyama.

kiriyama-1459There is also a dry landscape in the back of the garden. The array of boulders represents the way Buddha is lined up.

kiriyama-1478a-1425After fully enjoying the garden and the ruins of the castle (shrine), the castle of Kiriyamashiro is finally started. Return to the Red Bird, and head to the Kiriyama mountain climbing gate.
