This is the largest mountain castle in Tajima, which remains on the mount of 130m high.

This corner Yamashiro is a castle built by Mr. Yamayama, who boasts a major influence as a Tajima Guardian under the Muromachi shogunate. It was built in the second half of the 14th century, and at the end of 15th the castle was the guardian of Mr. Yamname. Not only the Tajima, but also the neighboring countries such as Inaba, Harima, Bizen and Mimasaka, and the heyday were called “Rokubunichi” Hishi 11 countries of 66 countries nationwide. However, the power gradually waned in the death of the head Yamayune all the rebellion and charisma of the emperor, and this corner castle is fallen in the Tajima invasion by the ODA army in 1569. After that, the new Castle of Arikoyama was also built, and in 1580 the invasion by Hideyoshi Habba was again a head of the castle, and soon died, and his son’s administration fled to Inaba, and the Tajima mountain name was ruined. This castle fortress was abandoned by the castle, but the Earth base and Horikiri are still good.

There are several trails to the Sumiyama castle ruins. Let’s make the climb and the descent a different route because it is much trouble. As a result of examining the Nagiri map of this Nook Yamashiro pamphlet which was obtained in the Izushi Castle, go to “Izushi Ancient Learning Museum” back, the return is determined to the east “Hakama narrow trailhead”.

konosumi-0330Arrival of “Izushi Ancient Learning Hall”. The Museum of Learning is also on display for free admission to the historical exhibition facilities and the nearby Castle fortress, so let’s go back to the castle fortress. The mountain behind the building is Sumiyama castle ruins. The trailhead seems to have to go from the road between two buildings to the foot of the building on the other side.

konosumi-0332From the building to the mountain hem. Since the perimeter of the mountain is a net fence is built around to avoid the animal, be careful not to enter from outside the entrance. It is written that the entrance of this Sumiyama historical site is large. Open the red door and go inside. I’ll close it when I open it. The actual trailhead is located on the inside of the fence and on the left side is a staircase next to the explanatory board.

konosumi-0335This corner Yamashiro Description board. And a detailed rope-clad figure is quite, the explanatory text has been described. If you do not have a map of the rope, walk while looking to put it in a digital camera smartphone. Let’s go out from the top right in the top left (the place where it is now). There is a route to the south, but it is hard to return. The so-called “radial continuous Guo” Yamashiro, where the main section of the summit is centered, is built along the ridge which stretches radially.

konosumi-0337Let’s go to the Sumiyama castle ruins from the stairs to the left of the explanation board. The impression that the grass is mowed and is easy to climb and is maintained. Many thanks local people. I would like to participate in volunteer activities for the maintenance of these ruins.

konosumi-0338The explanation board of such a direction board and the commentary had been built here and there on the mountain. This is very helpful in the medieval castle fortress, which is easy to wander. The main Guo is about 500m.

konosumi-0340The explanation board was built as a geographical area on the tomb in this as it was an kofun. I was not sure how to Mal in the locale. I did not come to see the tomb, but I came to see the castle ruins, and proceeded to the back without particular sticking.

konosumi-0341The Ridge Road continues for a while. Because it is a situation that there is no way somehow, I go up and down on the reference to the vinyl tape that is wound in a tree.

konosumi-0343Ridge Road. I feel relieved to be on a gradual uphill road.

konosumi-0345A steep slope appeared. The direction plate points to the top of the slope. The tiger rope appears like the Arikoyama Castle. The main Guo is 300 metres away.

konosumi-0347The slope is a little flat. The explanation board is built.

konosumi-0348“Castle ruins”. Castle Fortress is also friendly to the Yamashiro beginner. Posting like It is worrisome that the ruby of the defensive base becomes “Tejichi” for some reason.

konosumi-0350In the back of the ring, Horikiri was dug to intercept the Ridge Road. The middle looks like a dobashi, but it’s buried and hard to understand. In the Nahari figure of the pamphlet, it has been described small.

konosumi-0355In addition, Horikiri which was greatly sharpened appears when advancing to the interior. This is the largest Horikiri castle in this corner. The top of the ridge beyond Horikiri falls to the west of the main part.

konosumi-0356“Castle ruins Horikiri” explanation board. Digging grooves to divide the ridge. I think that it is easy to understand explanation though it is thought that it is too huge in the ditch. The “vertical moat” is not a “tombori”, but rather read as “the Castle”. The one dug in the vertical direction of the slope (perpendicular) is a vertical moat, and it becomes “Yokbori” when digging in the horizontal direction.

konosumi-0358To the west of the main part. The base is left in the circumference of the tune ring here. The base of the Earth is folded along the circumference of the inflection wheel. According to the pamphlet, there were some buildings on the ground level of the Western soil base. .

konosumi-0359“Fortress ruins” explanation board. Easy to understand.

konosumi-0362It looks at the West back further of the tune ring with the ground base because there is a tune ring of the lookout tower.

konosumi-0364sA sign at the western end of the main part. It is thought that “Miyashiki” ruins and “Sokagami-ji Temple fort” that it was in the southwest of the fortress before. There are many explanations, but it is too dirty and hard to read. So, the introduction in UP.

konosumi-0365sDescription on the West end of the castle. The details of “Miyashiki” on the west side of the foothills where the Guardian place of Tajima Guardian Mountain name (Ikan) were placed, and “West Wing Ring (here)”, “Senjojiki”, and “Sokagami-ji Fortress” which exists to surround it from three sides of the northeast South are written. From the west side of the mansion ruins, the old samurai residence ruins in the second half of the 15-16 century surrounded by the moat and the Earth base, and the date at the time of this corner castle fortress was written, too.

konosumi-0366The imagination figure of the Tajima Yamname Army which gathers in this corner fortress. Trees are cut down, and the situation of the castle is understood well from the foothills. The place where it is now is the part where a high lookout tower on a little figure center is drawn, and the place covered with a long fence on the front left is “mansion ruins”.

Whenever I see such a picture, I want to restore a whole mountain of the figure of the fortress of the time so good in one place somewhere, and when it comes to actually do “danger of landslide” and “the difficulty of maintenance management (mowing always)” is assumed, I also think that it is difficult to achieve. By the way, the same figure was exhibited in the “Izushi Ancient Learning Hall” at the foot, so if you want to watch it slowly.

konosumi-0368The view from the current West song ring. In October, the trees are still overgrown, and the ruins and Senjojiki are difficult to distinguish.

konosumi-0370Then we head to the main Guo. The road which was built on the slope is advanced.

konosumi-0372From here to the main Guo, it becomes feeling to overcome them because a small inflection ring ranges.

The latter part is a stroll of the main Guo, and a little tour of the Issushi Ancient Learning Hall in the foothills.
