2.1
#2 of 11 in Historic Sites in Ogaki
Sunomata Castle is a Japanese castle in Ōgaki in Gifu Prefecture at the confluence of the Kizu and Nagara rivers. It was constructed by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, one of the generals of Oda Nobunaga, while they were pressing the Siege of Inabayama Castle in the mid-16th century. "The work of building at Sunomata was done by a band of adventurers under the direction of a local robber baron named Hachisuka."Hideyoshi also found a secret path into the castle and they found Saitō Tatsuoki. Oda Nobunaga put him in exile as they were victorious in this war. According to legend, Sunomata Castle was built overnight. Today, it is referred to as Sunomata Ichiya Castle (墨俣一夜城 Sunomata Ichiya-jō). "Ichiya" literally means "one night." The castle tower has been reconstructed to serve as a local history museum.
