Hachigata Castle Park, Yorii-machi

#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Yorii-machi
Hachigata Castle is a mountain castle, or yamashiro, located in Yorii, Saitama Prefecture, Japan.HistoryHachigata Castle was built in approximately 1476 by Nagao Kageharu of the Late Hōjō clan. The castle was constructed at an excellent location, as it oversaw much traffic at an important crossroads, and was situated between two rivers. Hōjō Ujikuni improved the defences of the castle after he became lord in 1560.Takeda Shingen attempted to seize the castle in 1568 during the Siege of Hachigata (1568), but failed due to its extensive fortifications. For a month in 1590, Hachigata Castle held off the forces of both Maeda Toshiie and Uesugi Kagekatsu with a mere 3,000 defenders during the Siege of Hachigata (1590). Ujikuni finally surrendered the castle under the condition that the lives of his men would be spared. During the Edo period, the castle was demolished.TodayAlong with a large amount of ruins that remain largely undisturbed by development, a small part of the castle has been reconstructed, including some walls, a gate, and a building. A museum dedicated to the castle's history has also been erected.

Hotel is about a 15-minute walk from the station. Road vehicles often Park seems to have the silver Center there, is difficult to understand. I once had a castle, and has done so far and where the moat like and deep emotion.

  • After the battle of kawagoe, the fourth son of Hōjō ujiyasu, and Mr. Kunio is a castle as a defense of the Takeda and Uesugi. It is a castle utilizing the natural strongholds. So confusing and not from seeing the Museum remains unknown, such as earthworks, absolute watch Museum. This is a pretty good Museum. Using the massive Castle diorama, automated information flows in video, audio, and spotlight. Please note that the 200 yen admission fee, and is prohibited.
