  • The castle was built in the Lake Biwa Sakamoto's built 0/1572 (1571), after the siege of Mount Hiei Nobunaga by expert under the castle of Akechi Mitsuhide. Is made to conduct the management of supplies down the role as closers of Mt. Hiei and Kyoto and Biwako. Form of hosong heijo-Kyo is same as the Otsu Castle, zeze Castle, never intended for warfare was not. 0/1580 (1580) in the Tanba-Kameyama Castle also was Mitsuhide was as well the Sakamoto Castle 0/1582 (1582) 6/2 to Lord Oda Nobunaga at honnoji, Nobunaga and nobutada parents push to suicide. But during the escape to Sakamoto Castle and defeated Hideyoshi in the battle of Mt. tennozan 6/13 Mitsuhide is in Yamashina small kurisu stabbed the farmer bamboo spear deep wounds, has committed suicide. Akechi Hidemitsu's son-in-law captured Azuchi Castle, on the other hand, know the defeat of Mt. tennozan back to Sakamoto Castle, but along the way are attacked Hideyoshi towards Takeshi Masashi Hori hidemasa, loses most of the zealots. Where Hidemitsu took action! "onto the horse Lake Biwa" was. This has left Hori hidemasa also was taken aback and had stopped attacks on the mercy of the samurai and the anecdote. Although we are safely landed near the Sakamoto Castle already Hori hidemasa and Hideyoshi who were encircled. Hidemitsu realized so far and no longer killed Mitsuhide's wife and the Castle fire was emitted. Ammunition depot on fire, causing the vast Castle Thu was splattered on the Smithereens are. Sakamoto Castle and then utilizing the advantage in the process of unification of Hideyoshi by Niwa nagahide rebuilt is then 0/1586 (1586), Asano Nagamasa Otsu Castle was built by and, Sakamoto Castle and Castle. Is a strange speaking of strange, but not actually excavate never Sakamoto Castle, 0/1979 (1979),. I've heard many people do not know about what was revealed by the excavation can happened to be in the center of the ruins of a large residential development possibly be accompanied in the majority. Akechi Mitsuhide blade towards his Lord, "traitor" as the place has become famous, but still in the local high honor of the wise ruler handed down is. I want to thank visit as traces of hosong with views of Lake Biwa, the scenery changed but now spread still views.

  • It is said, once comparable to the Azuchi Castle meijo Akechi Mitsuhide's castle was. Has become the only remaining a little stone in Lake Biwa is a villain in the history of the current as the meijo. Felt the grief of the loser's Castle and see the statue of Akechi Mitsuhide and quietly located in the Castle Park.
