Yamate-Ginyamashiro: Mr. Sugihara’s castle is a clear ridge-shaped vertical moat and stone wall.

The Yamanote Silver Yamashiro is a medieval castle fortress built by the Bingfellow seems Lord Sugihara in the Warring States Period, and it is characterized that the ridge-like vertical moat Group and masonry remain satisfactorily. Mr. Sugihara has come to have considerable power in the South bingo around the castle of Jinabe, but he is destroyed by Mr. Mori in the Tensho period. It seems that the silver fortress was abolished at that time. There is no guidance of the explanation board and the climbing mountain, etc. in the locale, and it becomes the castle of the shape which rises the slope directly.

yamate_ginzanjo-01_2606There is no kind of the Guide board and the explanation board in the Yamate Silver Fortress, and only the ruins remain. It has been lost in the roadway maintenance of the photograph though it is said that there was a climbing road from the Xers temple in the east which is Sugihara Mr. Family Temple of the foot of the mountain before. It enters the mountain from this around which the former climbing road and the roadway intersect.

yamate_ginzanjo-02_2605There is a dent around there is a red vinyl tape. Is this a remnant of the former climbing road?

yamate_ginzanjo-03_2477There was a guide board of the caution on the side of the Tojo road. It is a note to the fellow who breaks the castle ruins by mountain biking. But if there is no guide board and explanation board to show the castle ruins on the site, this is the castle ruins will not know only mania at all.

yamate_ginzanjo-04_2479It goes to the mountain through the climbing road which seems to have been built in the valley muscle.

yamate_ginzanjo-05_2481It looks like the castle ruins. The recess which is walking now might be a side moat, and Horibottom Road. Although it is difficult to understand because there is no explanation board and the drawing, it is said that the ridge-like vertical Moat Group is built on the slope to narrow the road in the middle of the major road toward the main Guo and the main Guo in the top in the back in the left of the Tojo road.

yamate_ginzanjo-06_2485There are several inflection wheels built on the ridge. It reaches to the top of the tune suddenly by the road which has gone up at a dash by the forest path. It is a bend that hardened the ground with the cut shore and the Earth base. Let’s go to see a little bit.

yamate_ginzanjo-07_2489The ground base is built on the north side of the melody ring. In the photo, the defense was hardened assuming the attack from the north side. By the way, the mountains continue in the north, and Ashitagawa flows in the depths. The partner Castle of Mr. Mori who was the Lord of the fellow seems of the South Bingo, and Mr

yamate_ginzanjo-08_2490Let’s go because there is a tune ring with the stone wall in the East song group. The slope is descended from the road by the side of the inflection wheel along the ridge. Because there is no road like road, it is feeling to choose a slightly gradual point of the slope and go down as it is.

yamate_ginzanjo-09_2491The wreckage of the stone wall was built on the outer periphery of the wheel. The stone wall exists only on the south side of the melody Group. Was it built in the entire South region of the East Coast Circle group before?

yamate_ginzanjo-11_2495It came down about four steps of the East Tune group. The cutting level and the cut shore are seen alternately on the ridge by the feeling of making the stage tune in this round.

yamate_ginzanjo-12_2497The condition of the tune wheel is seen from this angle and it sees. The melody which is now is spread from the top to the fin, and the left side (south) to wrap up three inflection rings. It is said that the stone wall of the East Wheel group is made on the side of the stepped tune wheel which has descended now. Fold it here.

yamate_ginzanjo-13_2501There was a gap of the trees from this area, and the view was seen. It hits the south East Fukuyama direction. The Seto Inland Sea is seen ahead of Ashitagawa though it is slightly gloomy.

yamate_ginzanjo-14_2502sGo back up the ridge through the castle road beside the Dan-ring.

yamate_ginzanjo-15_2505It is buried in the dead leaf and it is hard to see, but a long stone wall has been built on the side of the wheel.

yamate_ginzanjo-16_2509The long stone walls remain in the east of the Yamanote Silver Fortress. In addition, it was not able to be found in the locale though there seemed to be a high stone wall of about 3m height according to the material.

yamate_ginzanjo-17_2510The right is the East Wheel group, and the left rear corresponds to the main enclosure. The central part is recessed greatly, and it might be a large horikiri which divides the castle area to the left and right by using the valley muscle.

yamate_ginzanjo-18_2511Then, when you go up to the left, you will continue to the main enclosure. The road extending to the right back is a castle road to the main Guo, and a ridge-like vertical Moat Group is built on the left slope.

yamate_ginzanjo-19_2515Let’s take a look at the ridge-shaped vertical moat group. Big tree is growing in the middle, it is hard to see from this side a little.

yamate_ginzanjo-20_2523Climb the ridge of the vertical moat, and try to overlook the ridge-like vertical moat from above. Enemy soldiers who have attacked from under this valley, hit the ridge-like vertical moat group at the top of the valley, inevitably dispersed in each horikiri, will be exposed to individual attacks from above.

yamate_ginzanjo-21_2527Let’s look at it a little diagonally. A group of vertical moat arranged on a slope. A firm ridge is built between the vertical moat and the vertical moat.

yamate_ginzanjo-22_2537From the bottom, I looked up at the ridge-shaped vertical moat group. Old times, the vertical moat was even deeper and the ridge was high.

yamate_ginzanjo-23_2539From the point of view of enemy soldiers coming up attacking. It does not advance to the vertical moat, and it is not made to climb to the right and the left so that here is a cut shore easily.

yamate_ginzanjo-24_2548In the appearance, the ridge-like vertical moat group seen from this angle was the most powerful from the relation of the tree. Why don’t you try looking on the spot to see which angle is better for you?

yamate_ginzanjo-25_2552Then, it passes over the ridge-like vertical moat group and it goes to the main enclosure. The road breaks to the right when going up the slope of a while ago, and the place where the soil is dented comes into view. This is the tiger mouth to the main Guo.

yamate_ginzanjo-26_2559The Castle Road and the tiger mouth which had risen a while ago are difficult to understand. In fact, there is a small parcel in the foreground though it looks like entering the left side of the outer wall of the left back immediately when the current state is seen. According to the material, this is the so-called “outer masugata” and is made equal, at that time is blocked the route in such as a fence and fence, soldiers who have gone up the slope of the slopes once entered the outside Masugata before the photo, And, it is assumed that it entered into the tiger mouth in the left back in shape like wrapping.

yamate_ginzanjo-27_2561The outside Masugata the tiger mouth and the small tune of the destination which entered from there. It is a deputy Guo in the back which became one step higher.

yamate_ginzanjo-27a_2564.jpgOn the south side of the small horn of this main Guo, a small inflection ring was established along the ridge, and it divided by Horikiri during that time. Moreover, it was very thin compared with it of the east side seen a while ago though went to see because it was in the material when the ridge-like vertical Moat Group was built also in the west side of the main Guo Group.

yamate_ginzanjo-28_2569Return to the small bend again and see the deputy Guo. Then, head for the main Guo district.

yamate_ginzanjo-29_2571The step from the small wheel to the sub-Guo, the edge was raised like a slope part, and two more huge stones were embedded. I wonder if the one like Kido was installed by the entrance here.

yamate_ginzanjo-30_2572To Deputy Guo. This is also quite wide. There is a place which is a little lower on the left and continues in the back, and there might have been a passage at that time perhaps.

yamate_ginzanjo-31_2573And, when the deputy Guo was further advanced, it reached the place where it became slender one step higher. On top of this, it hits the main enclosure. At that time, I wonder if it was enclosed by a board fence or something. And I can see some stones buried in places. I wonder if it was a stone building here, too. Go to the left back.

yamate_ginzanjo-32_2575It hits the circumference of the main enclosure when going to the end. There was a stone wall in the corners, and because the soil on that was greatly cut, at that time, there was a rock stone, and the trace that had collapsed or had been taken was seen. I don’t know where it came from, but I’ll go up from here.

yamate_ginzanjo-33_2577The main part is the back from here. It is a long, slender, thin-wheeled ring. Now that the tall trees are covering the surrounding area, it is a mountaintop, so if you cut down the trees, you will see a 360-degree panorama. Unfortunately, the view from the main Guo is not available now.

yamate_ginzanjo-34_2579A stone with a flat surface remaining in the main enclosure. The cornerstone of the building? However, the tile piece was not found.

yamate_ginzanjo-35_2580Advance to the back of the main enclosure.

yamate_ginzanjo-36_2581There was a place like the mark of the hole where the outside two directions were surrounded by the ground base in the central part of the main Guo.

yamate_ginzanjo-37_2582The circumference of the main enclosure had become a considerably steep cut shore. It would be difficult to enter directly from the slope without entering the previous Tiger mouth.

yamate_ginzanjo-38_2587In the northern tip of the main Guo, there was a road to the north of the castle. When I got off Coco, I reached Horikiri road when I first came in.

The Yamanote Silver Castle is a lot of attractions, such as the ridges of the ridge and Masonry, and the masugata of the outer wind. It is regrettable that there is not the kind of the explanation board and the Guide board at all though the maintenance such as the weeding of the site by local volunteers is advanced considerably. I hope to improve the historical sites in the future.
