  • So nice experience here! There was great nature; many kinds of plants or insects. And the air was fresh. This is a castle Uesugi Kenshin or Naoe Kanetsugu had lived in in the 1500s. I felt as if I wer...  more »
  • I came to the end of Uesugi Kenshin of kasugayama Castle. Kasugayama Castle Gets the chance at last, visit to Niigata, Uesugi Kenshin is my most favorite Takeda Shingen and Shingen's rival in love very much in, which is the wish to be is really good. Kasugayama Castle parking lot to go just a little bit before the homework is not enough at very large Castle in this area in its own way was and I came in ready to go, but just a little bit lost. And how to access two I think it safer to Kasuga shrine under the parking lot can be reached from Kasuga shrine and rinsenji Temple, another major road from the parking lot of this area might newbies think Kasuga shrine under the parking lot.  And suddenly I waits a lot of stairs if you arrive at the parking lot, climb in front of Kasuga shrine, go to the left and there is a statue of Kenshin. Normally from there to the honmaru is the only route on the mountain can be reached from the right side of the shrines for because there was landslide caused by heavy rain at the moment may go towards route impassable in repair work, walking towards the Castle, but normally onto the root variety of Kasuga Castle concentrated it doesn't matter what I think. However, some about the Peak District from further going major road parking lot down to walking down the road, to go around and pretty much takes time, so in the same way also comes back to the physical is safe. You can use root back on the road, visit the repair seems to be complete at the end of the year because it already was closed to traffic. I (1) Kasuga shrine (2) Kenshin, public image (3) sengan monzeki (4) Morisaki naoe Mansion (5) (6) Castle, the Castle Tower (7) Oido (8) until Uesugi Kagekatsu Mansion (9) kakizaki House went and came back by the same route, but round trip takes an hour and a half was. In the summer hot and exhausted but firm don't forget to bring your water. Castle as the ruins there's so much great stuff now is not worth as a residence for Kenshin and turf pretty hard to attack, a massive fortress filled with a very satisfactory visit at the point. I want to take a look at enjoying history is subtle when it comes to history isn't like what you think?, Takeda and Uesugi are interested like.

  • Only the stone walls and the prospect is in sight. Here in his hometown could not that Uesugi at first base, and come back here again and also. Through the grounds of the Kasuga shrine is reached here. Should is another former trail and Boardwalk is 2 times, experiencing heavy rain disaster, now seems unable to come climbing in this course.
