Shin-Miyagi [1/4] The road to the water hand is full of debris and mosquito.

Shin-Miyagi [1/4] The road to the water hand is full of debris and mosquito.

Shin-Miyagi is a castle that became a stronghold of the Kishu clan Shinmiyou of the Edo shogunate, which was built on the mountain of the Kumano River at the southern end of the Kii Peninsula, the castle itself was once built by Mr. Asano, who entered Shingu after the Sekigahara battle, but was once abandoned by a one-castle decree in 1615. After that, Mr. Asano became transferred to Mihara, and resumed the castle by Mr. Mizuno who was on behalf, and completed. A large-scale repair is performed each time the damage is caused by repeated earthquakes and fires. All buildings are removed by the ordinance of the Meiji Castle. The ruins of the castle were developed as a park of Dandong

Shingu Castle is a 10-minute walk to the north from JR Shingu station. The north side of the castle faces the Kumano River and is a natural hazard. The mountain entrance to the castle becomes the south side. The ruins area on the mountain is maintained as a Dantsuru Castle park, and there seems to be an entrance to the west exit and the east exit. Because the station is on the east side, it reaches the east exit ahead of the station, but according to the pamphlet which I got at the tourist office of the station, the west exit is old large modus operandi, and the stone wall of former two No Maru ruins (current nursery school) remains in a major West next.

So, turn around and head to the west entrance where there is a Kumano speed Tama shrine.

The stone wall of the former two no Maru. The two-no-Maru is a nursery school, and all the walls around the nursery are Ishigaki + tsuchifence. The corner stone is stacked with the implantation, and the other is almost a cut-off (some processing is rough, and it becomes a coarse-like composition). It is a place of the house old Mizuno family of Kishu Tokugawa family indeed. The stone wall can confirm a slight warpage though it is low. To the east along a splendid stone wall.

I’ll try to disturb you because there was a stairs going to the back a little or the edge of the two no Maru.

The stone wall (which seems to be the second round side). You can see that it is a little bulging (called “Hara”). Because it collapses from the inside when it swells too much, repair work is necessary before it becomes awful.

This is the major entrance of Shingu Castle. Crossbar like it is being built.

Shingu Castle is popular in Shingu city as “Dantsuru-no-Shiro Park”. This is a guide board which was in a major mouth. A brief history of the castle by Mr. Asano and Mr. Mizuno, and a description of the location structure which was built on a mound facing the Kumano River. I am glad to see the rope that drew details such as each inflection wheel. It is fun to explore the ruins while comparing them with the drawings of the Edo period. The drawings of the Edo period (Shoho-Jo Ezu) are here (NATIONAL archives da).

Up of the figure part of the rope. The whole mountain seems to become a fortress surrounded by the stone wall. It is brave that the railroad tracks are carried through the underground of the castle ruins (GJ is the tunnel that did not break).

Crossbar beyond, go up the stairs. The stairs that were built in recent years, some old stone steps in the major road era remains. I wonder if this area was a slope rather than a staircase. Found the square on the right.

It was covered with the stone wall though it was low around the square on the right side of the major road. I thought that it might be a place where the old times was built to watch the samurai coming in from the major mouth here, but the road which leads from the castle to the Pine Circle is not to begin with, and it seems to be connected to the road from which it leads from the second round when looking at the drawing. This place is now in the mountains. When it comes to the bottom of the stone wall of the bell circle on this stone wall?

Continue further. This area is due to the recent maintenance.

And, here is a connection point to the major mouth which continues from the maintenance part in recent years and the originally. The slope which continued to two no Maru has been blocked here because there is a nursery school of the second no Maru.

Go up the big mouth stairs with very atmosphere. The standard stone steps which are difficult to climb with different heights and widths.

On the way, the road breaks and the wall changes to the stone walls. I feel like I’m getting closer to the front of the castle.

And when I climbed up the stairs, I finally went to a major temple. It seems to be a place where the masugata is made a narrow space by the stone wall/mud wall ahead of the entrance.

Masugata the exit side of the Toraguchi (Castle side). According to the drawings, there was a small gate near this small entrance. The large mouth, the gate, and the masugata are small, but a rectangular stone that is tightly cut is piled up without a gap.

Beyond the masugata of the big Mouth, the first wheel is the “Pine circle”. The other side of the next Tiger mouth that appears in front is the “circle of Bells” leading to the Honmaru, and the other side of the photograph is the road to the “water hand wheel” spread along the Kumano River.

Masugata Port entrance to Honmaru. The impression is stronger than the big mouth. A high-level technique called “infeed-in-the-cloth” where the stone walls are cut out and the rectangular stones are neatly piled up in a row. As we go later, let’s walk around the water hand first.

To the back of the Pine circle. The slope which descends to the right back surrounded by the stone is a road to the water hand. According to the drawing, there seems to have been a small gate in this doorway.

The way to the water hand is like this. Pretty steep and narrow. July & This is the waterside ahead, the impression that the brush mosquito increased suddenly from this around.

There was a place like the wreckage of the stone wall which had been piled up firmly before in the middle of the slope, too. The road is bent to the reverse S character.

And, the road goes to the foot of the mountain fast.

It came down to the bottom, and there was a place where the stone wall collapsed here, too. Especially, the stone of the collapsed part on the left side is neatly straightened square. It might be a stone wall which was in not the one here but more on (round of the pine tree). The road from the round of the pine to the water is drawn like a mountain trail, but it seems to have been firmly defended to be able to correspond when actually being attacked from the water Hand (port) in this way in the positive Hojo drawing.

The mountain path continued quite a bit, but when I came to this area, my vision opened up a little. The water hand is coming soon.

You can see a place like a stone wall on the other side of the stairs. Honestly, the heart that was broken by the brush mosquito bites in this slope is revived! Hurry ahead.

The one like the stone wall which was seen before was a place like the Stones Exhibition Hall of Ishigaki. It seems to hit the entrance of the hand of water here. There is a staircase in the back and you can get down to the Kumano River below. Because there is a signboard in the foreground, let’s go down after seeing it first.
