Castle
Iwasaki Castle is a hill castle located in Nisshin, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It was built during the Sengoku period in Owari Province and was a support castle to Shobata Castle .HistoryIn an attempt to protect his eastern borders, Oda Nobuhide built Iwasaki Castle in the early 16th century. The castle changed hands in 1529, when Matsudaira Kiyoyasu seized it and made the castle headquarters for the Matsudaira clan. Kiyoyasu's son, Matsudaira Hirotada, moved his residence elsewhere after Kiyoyasu was assassinated in 1535 by one of his retainers, Abe Masatoyo. Niwa Ujikiyo was placed in control of the castle and his descendents continued to rule out of it until Battle of Iwasaki Castle in 1584. The Battle of Iwasaki was part of the larger Battle of Komaki and Nagakute, and during the battle the castle was besieged and taken by the Toyotomi clan's forces led by Ikeda Tsuneoki. The garrison, led by Niwa Ujitsugu, suffered numerous casualties including 300 killed, Ujitsugu's brother Niwa Ujishige being among the dead. The castle was abandoned and destroyed after the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600.

  • Iwasaki Castle, is good to know the history of the regional facilities. You can enter the Castle features a museum. However, the castle itself is a small low layer building is. It is a castle, rather than fire, is good stuff. Have been prepared beforehand, looks good.

  • On good-weather day came between grandparents and children. It is was the return of Iwasaki Castle near the shrine of shrines and temples agency registration and the Naritasan Temple. Stroll the spacious grounds however and the staff were very helpful. In particular, volunteers (as was proclaimed) was also wearing body armor greeted us, wearing a child-size body armor to his son, in a mock sword posing photo shoot. At that time my son has absorbed in "Ninja", once a year attending Ninja Academy is all the way to the yagyū in Nara. Clearly remember looking at my grandparents and was very happy to see it, soothing smile, soothing me. Standing on a hill, so the Castle? Views from Nice. Even birds chirping, feel good. It's going great. It was some time in the middle of the sales at the company, visit this castle, ate lunch at all. Remember, when the voices of the birds are cute, very soothing. "Future story" warring seems long ago, this area is really was against the people that inspired "feel something" says. So, has been offering all photos here are. Believe, do not believe in superstitious or unlucky visiting is free, so did I. Well, castles and other historic sites is all about so we went though.
