Tottori Castle [Part 2] The high stone wall of the second no Maru is unexpectedly gradual

Tottori Castle [Part 2] The high stone wall of the second no Maru is unexpectedly gradual

Tottori Castle is famous for having become the stage of the fierce battle many times in history. Originally, it was the castle of Mr. Yamana who was the territory of this region, but after that, it became a place of the fight by Mr. Mori and Mr. Amako (Yamanaka Shisuke), and the place of the battle between Hideyoshi and Mori when the start of the Mori Masaki by Nobunaga. Especially in the second Tottori Castle attack by Hideyoshi Army is famous for the harsh starve us out was done. In the Edo period, Mr. Ikeda renovated into the modern castle. The building was almost torn off in the Meiji era except for a part, but a lot of splendid stone walls remain in the two no Maru and celestial circles. In Tottori City, the project to restore Tottori Castle in the Edo period with a budget of more than 30 years and over 5 billion yen has been underway since 2006.

There are three entrances to the Tottori Castle ruins: Kitanogate, the Middle gate, and Minami-Mikado. The main road at that time was the mid-Ono gate, but this is currently undergoing restoration work (scheduled to be completed in H30), and it seems common to enter the North gate mark as the current sightseeing route.

tottori-8129A bridge across the inner moat leading to the ruins of Kitomamon. The mountain seen in the back was Hisashi Matsuyama, and there was a medieval Tottori castle and the early modern castle. It is said that a melody and a tower stand remain on the mountaintop. (I climbed to the middle but forced abandon because of trouble)

tottori-8129a-8279The appearance of Uchibori. There are a lot of carp swimming. There was a dog-run structure in the stone wall. The end seems to have been reclaimed, but mostly remains.

tottori-8130a-8284The stone wall of the cut Lespedeza in front is a mark of Kitomamon. On the left, there is a stone monument called “Tottori Castle ruins, Taiko Anpei”. As a country designated historic site, as well as the Tottori castle ruins, since it has been designated historical sites, including the castle (front base) that was built in the case of Hideyoshi’s Tottori Shiro attack, all the pamphlets are also in this notation.

tottori-8134Straight up to the end of the Castle Road. You can see the Taisho-Roman building on the right, but this is not related to Tottori Castle, so I decided to stop by later, and first I saw the castle of Tottori. I was excited to see a great stone wall immediately in front. However, it seems not to go up straight.

tottori-8135The explanation board of Tottori Castle as the early modern castle. It seems that the stone wall was collapsed (→ repaired) in the Tottori Big earthquake in 1943, and the central partition gate which was the only existing gate in the gust of 1950 was destroyed (→ repaired).

tottori-8140This is the central partition gate which was described in the explanation board ahead. A small roof on top of the post is the Koryo Gate. It is said that it was rebuilt soon though it collapsed by the gust of Wind regrettably in 1975.

tottori-8142On the stone wall, not from the central partition gate, but because I want to look at the most Hashikkokara one by one, the other side of the road (Nishizaka) proceeds. According to the guide, ten steps on the left side of the road are the remnants of the old baseball stadium.

tottori-8143The hair pin curve is drawn and it continues to the top when going to the hit. A sign is standing at the end.

tottori-8144A sign at the end. It is said that the route to go straight was a major road of the past instead of climbing this slope with the hairpin curve. If I pinch the rope of a landmark… The rope was not found in the grass boy when seeing. The guide said that I do not recommend this route at all.

tottori-8146When you go up the hill, a wall of high stone walls appears. It seems to hit the second round on this. I retry the stone wall from the side of the street lamp because the pillar of the lamp and the corner of the stone wall overlapped.

tottori-8149I looked up from the bottom of the stone wall. As you can see, it has been stacked up at a fairly gradual angle. The corner is piled up to the bichimrikiki by the calculation piling by the pyramid piling. The stone wall of the two no Maru collapses by the earthquake in the early Showa era though it is piled beautifully without… It might have been piled up at that time because it was.

tottori-8151To the top of the second no Maru. The stone wall which extends toward the slope of the mountain suddenly. It is a climbing wall. The climbing stone wall is often built on the slope of the mountain, but the pattern which continues from such a plane to the top was seen for the first time.

tottori-81532 No Maru. Pretty wide. You can see a higher tower stand in the back.

tottori-8153a-8155The explanation board of the two no Maru marks. It seems to have built a big Lord mansion in the center at that time though it is rambling square now.

tottori-8154I look at the tower stand of the two no Maru from the 2 No Maru. Because the stone wall of the two no Maru is piling up a high stone wall at a reasonably moderate angle, the tower stand is sure to be terrible… If it thinks, there is another tune circle under the Tower stand part, and it seems to be piled up on that. The angle is steeper than the second round, and the corner stone is cut-out.

tottori-8159There was an area where the stone was rumbling on the mountain side of the 2 No Maru. It says the quarry.

tottori-8160Stone cutting area explanation board. The stone which had come out was made to the Stonewall as it was in a flat ground by greatly shaving here in the ridge of the Kumatsu mountain originally. It is the first case that there is a stone cutting place in the back of the Lord Mansion of the two no Maru though the stone cutting field ruins are considerably left here and there.

tottori-8161Then, it goes to the tower stand. It seems that the big tower stand was the second floor of the two-round tower. First of all, it is said that it was found that the name of magistrate and master carpenter carved in the corner stone of the third floor tower.

tottori-8162This is the corner stone whose name is engraved. You can see the letters carved on the right side of the middle split.

tottori-8162a-8165This is the second floor of the two-round tower. The third floor tower was built on this. It is likely to have stood out indeed from the castle outside because it piled up one step higher on the outermost side of the second no Maru. The tower of Tottori Castle was on the mountain, but it burnt down by the lightning in 1692, and it is nodded that this second floor tower was a tower alternative after that.

tottori-8164The third floor tower Mark explanation board. Unfortunately, the demolition was removed in Meiji 12.

tottori-8165a-8163Another explanation board that stood next to the second floor of the two-no-Maru tower, about the restoration of the third floor tower Ishigaki. It is said that the stone wall of this three-storey tower was repaired first of all in 1959 when the ruins were specified in 1957 though the stone wall collapsed in various places in the earthquake in 1943, and it seemed to have been as it was in the wartime. The same technique as the Edo period carried out by all process human strength, seven years of construction!
