Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
Kaminoyama Castle is a hirayama-style Japanese castle located in the center of the city of Kaminoyama, eastern Yamagata Prefecture, Japan. Throughout the Edo period, Kaminoyama Castle was the headquarters for the daimyō of Kaminoyama Domain. The castle was also known as "Tsukoka-jō".HistoryThe first castle on this site dates to the early Muromachi period, when the area was under the control of the Tendō clan. The area was contested between the Mogami clan and the Date clan, changing hands several times. The foundations of the present castle were built by Takenaga Yoshitada, a retainer of the Mogami, in 1535. However, after the establishment of the Tokugawa shogunate, the Mogami were dispossessed, and a new 40,000 koku domain, Kaminoyama Domain was created. Thereafter the castle and Kaminoyama Domain passed through a number of daimyo clans, often for only a generation or two, and its revenues were often reduced. Under the Toki clan, a donjon was built, but it was destroyed when the clan was transferred elsewhere in 1692. In 1697, the castle came under the control of the Fujii branch of the Matsudaira clan, which continued to rule over Kaminoyama Domain until the Meiji restoration.To visit Kaminoyama Castle and other attractions in Kaminoyama, use our Kaminoyama vacation builder.

入口には足湯がある。 中は天守閣まで上れて、歴史の展示物がある。 天守閣では外に出られて、ぐるりとまわりの景色が眺められる。 作りは本格的だが、それ以上の感動はない。 いちおうチェックしたという感じの訪問になる。Entrance to the foot. In the castle of 上rete, there is an exhibit of the history.
