Gold Sea Takeshima Castle [1/3] a huge stronghold that secures the water traffic of the Nakdong River.
Gold Sea Takeshima Castle is one of the earliest stronghold castles built as “the castle of the placing” in the role of the Bunroku. Naoshige was in charge of the castle. The castle was built in the hub of the river and Nakdongjiang, which flows through the peninsula, holding the water traffic of Nakdongjiang along with the
Kameura Castle on the other side, and was a base for invasion and relaying to the northwest of the peninsula. When it is useful to Keicho, the island of Kameura on the other side of the bank was torn down, but the Gimhae Castle had maintained the front to the end. Although the remains are largely lost due to reclamation, except for a part, the appearance of the old Times assumed from the ruins and the topography which remains in a huge castle area was felt in the locale.

Entrance to the Golden Sea Takeshima Castle. There is a parking lot and a guide board. There is a temple on a concrete slope, and the castle ruins spread in the interior.
First, from the Guide board. Hangul and English by example. It seems that the reason why English is amusing is that it is a machine translation from Hangul. It is quite difficult to read the English version of the translation → “in 1593, to counter the counterattack of the Korean army while holding the water traffic of Nakdongjiang, parent and child castle is built. The main part is located at the top of the obon of 47.5 m, and the wall is left on the west side. The main part is the east-west 460m, the north and south 100m, the continuous Guo type that the melody is a straight line, the whole has become a double structure (band Guo), the outer peripheral portion is approximately about 1200m. According to the annals dated February 15, 1595 on the Korean side, the castle was the same size as Pyongyang, surrounded by the three sides by Nakdongjiang, the interior was built of wood, earth and stone, a flashy giant tower, lined with small towers around it, and the size of more than a million soldiers could be stationed there. The castle was located at the entrance to the Gimhae district from the sea side, and the river was a strategic position with the WA Castle (SHINDAP) and the Massha WA Castle (Masa) as the castle, which was able to moor the ship. 」
They go up the hill The concrete road is the approach of the temple, and it does not understand how far the ruins at that time although the stone wall looks everywhere. The stone under the road is different, but the visible part under the trees in front is the remains?
From the top of the hill, overlooking the Nakdong River. The altitude is about 50m. The river overlooks the ground and is the perfect place to curb water traffic. The castle is built to extend the river to the east and to the west.
There was a big temple when I went up the hill (no photo). From the side of the temple building to Okuyama. The walls of the stone wall came into view. There is a building of the temple, and this side is not understood, and this falls to the eastern part of the castle.
If you look closely, this is like a big masugata tiger mouth. The stone which was shaped in front of the right is different, but there is a stone wall in the right side and the left side, and there is a stone wall in front. It seems that it was a route which entered here, and turned to the left by the thrust.
I tried to take a picture of masugata tiger mouth, but it is difficult because the trees grow subtly. It becomes the structure of “inside Masugata Tiger Mouth” where the Masugata enters in the tune ring, and it might have been a shape like going up by the slope or the stairs because there is a stone row in the front of the masugata.
Masugata the east side of the tiger mouth. The temple is a glimpse of the building at the far left. It is a feeling of the hill on the rear of the temple.
The stone wall which seems to be a big tower stand is left to the right toward the Masugata Tiger mouth. There is a stone row which connects vertically to the tower stand which tells that there was a stage low of the stone wall making in the foreground. Now the left and right are grass, so it looks like a slope. Let’s go over this stone wall to the right and see the stone wall of the tower stand.
It descends to the slope, and it goes to see the stone wall of the tower Stand (corners). This area has been mowing or grass, a huge stone wall appeared suddenly open sight! Everyone is excited.
The stone wall of the East Corners Tower stand. The stone wall is built to auction on the steep slope, and the foot of the corners is long. A style that looks good in WA castle. There is no slope in the stone wall. The contractor was in charge of Naoshige.
Let’s take a look at the stone wall from below. It is an illusion of the eye that the stone wall seems to curve to the reverse slope when seeing from the bottom. It is characteristic of piling up like the development process of the counting tree piling. Is it a diversion stone (Korean lantern) that is mixed with the stone which has been shaped considerably neatly occasionally? By the way, Korea is a soil burial culture, and a lot of soil burial marks of “Tsuchibun type” are seen in WA Castle.
Is it because of the maintenance that only the corner stone is exposed without grass? On this, it is assumed that the main Guo is a melody of the East back. It has a splendid tiger mouth east and west, and a huge stone wall is built on the circumference.
Let’s take a look at the high stone wall of the main Guo circumference (north Face) without entering the main enclosure as it is. The other side of the building was built, or it was not seen very much, but the north side is being maintained as a stroll route, and it is easy to see.
The main enclosure back is seen from the side of the tower stand. The stone wall of 7-8m continues to the far back. The stage under the stone wall has become bashed, but it might have been a band-like space.
It is a high stone wall with a fine size of stones stacked on a flat surface. About 430 years have passed, but some of them are problematic, but they have left the majesty of those days.
Where the ridge of the stone wall was buried near the central part of the North Face stone wall. Originally, the tune wheel was here, and the right side might have been extended on the way. The height seems to have been piled up about 2m. There seems to be no particular instruction or record of renovation of the Gimhae Takeshima Castle, but it was built during the early castle of the end of the role of Bunroku, and one of the longest-used WA castles that existed until the time of the Keicho. It is not amusing to be rebuilt firmly in the middle to prepare for the attack of the enemy.
The high stone wall of the main Guo North side from the west side. A long, high stone wall on the north side might be able to be seen well from Rakudongjiang which flows in the east at that time.
It came to the edge of the high stone wall of the north side. It seems that the other melody is wider according to the drawing though it is a main guo of a considerably size. The story that 10,000 people can be accommodated is not a sense of scale altogether. It is possible to enter the main Guo from here to the West, but the main Guo Seomyeon is rough and difficult to understand, so once you return to the east side, enter from the Masugata Toraguchi you saw earlier.
I went through the outside of the tower stand a while ago, but this time I went through the slope along the stone wall and went over the main Guo. This road seems not to be the road at that time. I’ve been through the bottom of the right.
It is a large hole which seems to be a turret mark which was probably in the top of the tower stand though it was not understood where it was wandering.
The stone wall of the tower stand looked up from the bottom earlier. Quite high. I should have taken one step further.
From the top of the tower, looking down at the first masugata Tiger mouth. It is quite buried, but it is understood that it is square well. There seems to be no entrance at first glance, but the masugata of the bamboo is laid in front of the entrance.
Inside the main enclosure is like this. It can be seen that it is fairly flat, although there seem to be no ruins which were the main in particular. The tower was lined, the fence was enclosed, and the barracks etc. were lined up in the place. It’s hard to understand, but the brown rod in front of the Gimhae is the local explanation board of Takeshima Castle.
The local explanation board of the Golden Sea Takeshima Castle. The lack of English compared to hangul. However, compared with the machine translation of the parking lot, here English is neatly. The Gimhae Takeshima Castle, which was built in the role of the Keicho of Bunroku, is now only a few hundred yards away. He served as the headquarters of the Japan Army stationed in the Gold sea area. The two castles, the WA Castle and the Ma Sha Wa Castle, were built by Japan forces to protect the castle. There was not much information in English.
The west side of the main Guo. The left back is bashed in the Tsuchibun (the burial site of Korea). The upsurge in the back of the green sheet on the right side, according to the drawing “tower” but it has been…
An upsurge of tower. It is not possible to imagine a little now that there is no cutting track and there were a few layers of turrets on this.
