[Right] This is the new version of the Guide board. The third Keihin road halves east and west of the castle area.
Also, I feel that the part of the castle on the south side of JR is completely detached and disappears from the Guide board.

If you pass through the forest over the tunnel of JR, you will pop into the private parking lot and the park is over.

The south side of JR of the photograph, the east side of the third Keihin was not accessible, but here tooOut CastleIt seems to have been a castle area at the edge of.
