  • Founder of the Mogami clan Shiba kaneyori built in 1357, and was told, kaneyori descendants after the Mogami clan called, is like a castle from generation to generation. Currently no Castle Tower was fitted baseball field and Park in the large Castle. I feel like imagine character the inner Citadel gate and ninomaru Higashi OTE gate was restored, was shown at the time of the size of the Castle at that time.
