Morioka Castle is a hirayama-style Japanese castle constructed in 1611. It was the seat of the Nanbu clan, a 100,000 koku tozama daimyō clan who ruled over Morioka Domain, Mutsu Province, in what is now central Morioka, Iwate Prefecture, Japan. It was also referred to as Kozukata Castle, but strictly speaking this name pertains to the predecessor of Morioka Castle on the same site.BackgroundThe confluence of the Kitakami River and the Nakatsu River was of strategic importance in control of river traffic in central Oshu, and a castle was built on this located during the late Heian period by the Kiyohara clan.HistoryDuring the late Sengoku period, former Nanbu Nobunao lord of Fukuoka Castle in Kunohe was awarded holdings in Mutsu Province exceeding 100,000 koku, including the site of old Kozukata Castle and received permission to build a new castle from Toyotomi Hideyoshi. These holdings were confirmed after the Battle of Sekigahara by Tokugawa Ieyasu. The actual construction work on the new castle was supervised by his Nanbu Nobunao’s son, Nanbu Toshinao, who later became the 1st daimyō of Morioka Domain, but the castle was not completed until 1633, during the reign of Nanbu Shigenao, the 2nd daimyo.Add Morioka Castle Ruins and other attractions to your Morioka trip itinerary using our Morioka vacation trip planner.
