岸和田城(きしわだじょう)は、大阪府岸和田市岸城町にあった日本の城である。別名千亀利城(ちきりじょう)。江戸時代には岸和田藩の藩庁が置かれた。庭園は国の名勝、城跡は大阪府の史跡に指定されている。概要建武元年(1334年)前後に、和田高家が現在の岸和田城跡から約500m東(野田町1丁目周辺)に岸和田古城を築城。「岸の城」とも言われた。その後『日本城郭大系』によると信濃泰義によって現在地に移築されたとしている。羽柴秀吉の紀州征伐の拠点として再築城され、その急ごしらえで造られていたものを、小出秀政が5重天守を上げる本格的な構えとした。松平康重の代に総構えと城下が整備され、岡部宣勝の頃、城の東側に2重、西側に1重の外堀と寺町が増築されている。文政10年(1827年)に天守を焼失。以降再建されないまま、明治4年(1871年)に廃城とされ、まもなく破却された。岸和田城は猪伏山(いぶせやま)と呼ばれた小高い丘の上にあり、本丸と二の丸を合せた形が、機の縦糸を巻く器具「縢」(ちきり)に似ていることから蟄亀利城(後に千亀利城)と呼ばれるようになった。城内にある岸城神社は千亀利と「契り」とをかけて、縁結びの神社として知られている。桜の季節は花見の名所となる。日本100名城の選定対象となるものの、検討の結果、選定されなかった。

  • Original in-bed Tower is a five-story clapboard Castle Tower filled? In the Cretaceous, such as bad 3-tier gazebo-sorry for the unavoidable. At present has weatherboard ' near Okazaki Castle ". So don't hate hope in the afterlife? But actually left over the back of the Tower, have a wall that hides what's negative. Castle ninomaru more respectable in the left and right corner tower from Burns 'stubborn' point of view and with only nominal wall "poor was Chan." of a figure. It's like we built a corner tower on the back side. Round heart Art Museum and the restaurant overlook one, fantasy--in its place without rebuilding the Fushimi-Yagura, also do not build a latrine Tower all somehow. You don't need the toilet was necessary but severe knee stairs with latrine turret. I'm not threatened the State.

  • There is absolutely no historical buildings, but was touched by unexpected splendid stone wall and moat. View from the third floor tower was exhilarating in Museum was poor in terms of content. Although there are existing buildings enjoy 10 minutes. Very well-maintained and quite a number of people was he involved in development when I visited. Damn got damn Kishiwada treasure to protect the 垣間見reta.

  • Edo period celebrated by Okabe. Initially as one of the less powerful lords of the West country, outsider, was also a settsu Amagasaki Castle and one in two roles. So is Castle in Matsudaira is the early Edo period. And the lightning in the first half of the 18th century the Castle disappeared. Castle was originally 5 layers and are now in the third floor 3-layer during the Museum's. You do not have a lift. Stairs are so hard is not the most later ones straight is long. I think the castle is rebuilt in 0/1954 grace. Before the castle garden is notable. Referred to 八陣 of Komei's stance with reference to is made. Stubborn restaurant sees from the Castle, but by using the historic Lord mansion, Homestead food?? In addition, in the castle restaurant. Together with Danjiri Hall tour is recommended.
