KaitajoThe castle was in Nagaokakyo City, Kyoto Prefecture.City Historic SiteIs specified.
I guess it is a class of super Maniac Fortress. When we talk about going to the castle for the next holiday, “was there a castle in such a place?” It is often said,The castle and the fortress were everywhere in the whole country!I want to talk about it.
It is an image of the castle, but most people think of the Edo era Castle with its splendid tower and stone walls (Himeji CastleAndNagoya CastleAnd.. The castle fortress as the medieval castle of the feudal lord and the person who is reading a historical novel like a little around the Warring States period, etc. (Otari CastleAndKasuga YamashiroAnd… .
The scale of the Kaida castle is even smaller,Fellow seems, Kunshu, Tsuchigo. Or Ground SamuraiIt is said. One of the small lords who ruled the region which is not so large as the village and the town level although it is good if the image of approximately is floatedMr. NakojiIt is a castle that doubles as a house.
There might be a person who has grown from among these small lords to the Sengoku feudal lord, and the person who has been absorbed as a subordinate of a larger power, and is hardly talked about, and there is a person who ruined. It was an age when the Warring States period fought for such countless lords for the survival.
This area, which is currently in the southwest direction from Kyoto in Nagaokakyo City, was called the Otoprecept and Nishioka region, and there were crushed especially small lords. TheyNishiokaIt is called, and it seems to have demonstrated a considerable military power to unite. The Muromachi period seemed to have a moderate presence, but by Oda Nobunaga’s advancement, it is in the same Nagaokakyo city.Masaru-ryu-ji CastleToTakashi HosokawaWhen they entered, these lords were destroyed, absorbed, and disappeared from the stage of history and nature.

How was it?
It’s like a little castle feature near where I live.
The small heijo of the town had disappeared by urbanization, and there were many cases that only a stone monument stood, but Kaida Castle stayed on the last minute.
It’s good to find traces of local leaders.
