Miyagi [1/4] a huge stone wall on a steep mountaintop is one of the impressive Awa-Kyu Castle.
Miyagi is a mountain fortress built on the mountaintop of about 120m of the enshrined of Awa-Ichinomiya shrine in the foothills. In the early Muromachi period, the castle was built from the time of the AWA Country Guardian Ogasawara, but it was renovated to the total stone building by the Hachisuka housekeeper who was given AWA by the Shikoku hiraiding of Hideyoshi in the end of the Warring States. It occupied an important position as one of Awa Nine castle until the early Edo period, but it became a deserted castle in 1638 due to the decree of Ichijo. There are no buildings left, but there remains a huge stone wall built in the main enclosure, it can be seen that there was no exhaustive destruction as in other castles during the castle abandoned.

The entrance of the Miyagi Tozan Road. It is near the Dainichi temple which falls on the tenth third of sacred sites of the Shikoku 88th Place and AWA Country Ichinomiya Shrine. A big stone monument and a guide board are marked.
The historical site of Ichinomiya Castle Monument at the entrance of the mountain Trail.
Explanation board. It has a simple origin and a large map including the surrounding terrain. When Hideyoshi’s Shikoku attack, it became the stage of the battle with the Chosokabe Motochika of Ichinomiya Castle and the mountain on the other side across the river and occupy.
To the entrance to the castle. It is paved with concrete, but it becomes a mountain road soon after a while. Let’s take a look at the guide board.
The Ichinomiya Castle Ruins Guide board at the entrance. It seems to be able to go up to the Honmaru, and to come down the circle from the direction of the Yin Waterfall.
The start of the climbing castle. At first, it becomes the climb by the stone steps toward a steep mountain peak.
The stone steps are endless.
There are some ground levels along the way, but basic stone steps continue. When you climb up, the road divides into the lid hand. Proceed to the right to the main Guo district. Move left to the warehouse. Let’s look at the vertical moat of the front later.
First, to the warehouse mark. It was a slope a long time ago, but I can see a blue sky around here. If you go to the tip, you look good.
Old Monument of the warehouse mark. The back is so.
Warehouse traces. It seems that there was a warehouse in the position which hit the tip of the ridge before. According to the explanation board, there were two warehouses in the castle, and they had cereals and armor. It is said that burnt wheat might have been excavated. This place in the middle of the middle of the battle would have been burned falling into the hands of the enemy in one of the battles.
View from the warehouse ruins. The back of the mountain seen in the front corresponds to Naruto. The weather was good, but the Naruto bridge was not visible to the naked eye.
Then, head for the main Guo district. The slope is quite steep, and the vertical moat seems to have been built, but it is not understood well because it is buried in mulch.
To the place where it was processed like a corrugated wheel. The side is reinforced by the stone product when looking closely.
Rather than a stone wall, the impression that I buried or piled up a small stone for reinforcement. The right side is the wall, the slope of the cliff on the left, the narrow castle aisle of two people also take.
It seems to be able to escape on the slope of a while ago.
There is a signboard called “Melody”. A small stone can be seen on the shore of the upper stage.
This is a step to protect the passage. The place where the slope was originally was cut flat, and the left side is built a steep cutting shore. It was written, “field ruins” in the drawing which was in the gate of the Tokijo. A lot of cherry trees are planted when looking closely, and it might be a spot pink cherry blossom spots when spring comes.
A huge cut shore came into view in front. The right side is a steep angle, and the left is a slope.
Turning to the left, it was written that another warehouse mark, the new house ruins, and the Heaven Full Valley were exceeded, and it was blocked by the rope and it was not advanced.
Wow slope. It’s pretty tough to get up from here.
Directly below the steep shore of the front. It’s tough to climb up from here.
There was a spring water beneath the shore. However, this is a recent one according to the explanation board. Ensuring water is the lifeblood of the castle.
It climbs while bypassing the steep cut shore from the spring water.
The main part of the castle where there is a considerable height difference with the place where the warehouse ruins-the field ruins existed before. Even if it sacking ahead, the main part is protected even by this only the cut shore and the height.
A maze-like way across the coast.
It is a big cut shore of the height difference and a steep angle only of this when seeing back.
And, the ending point of the uphill road of the steep slope is Horikiri road. It is a road made by scraping between the left and the right.
The left side of Horikiri Road is made of a tiger mouth, and the back is written “Saizo Maru”.
The stone monument which stands at the entrance was not “Saizo Maru” but “goods collection Maru”.
Onto the Saizo Maru. It’s a fairly wide-cut flat. At the end of the ridge, the trees are cut and you can enjoy the view.
View from Saizo Maru. The front interior is called “Mt. Oyama”, also known as the symbol of Tokushima. Naruto is in the back.
Came down the Saizo Maru. Horikiri Road leads to the vertical moat as it is. Go to the right back to the main enclosure. Did it become such a composition at that time, and did this become it in the case of the historical site maintenance? It is not here that the tiger mouth is written, but it points to the entrance part to the Saizo Maru a while ago.
