清洲城 Kiyosu-jyou Kiyosu Castle

Jp En

Kiyosu Castle, located in Kiyosu, Aichi Prefecture, was established by Shiba Yoshishige in 1405.

Kiyosu Castle was a center of resistance for the 'Tenka Fubu'. In 1478, it became a center of Owari province. After the death of Oda Nobunaga, Oda Nobukatsu became lord of the castle until he was ousted by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and replaced by Fukuyama Masanori.

Soon after the Battle of Sekigahara, the Tokugawa family took control of the castle. When Nagoya Castle was founded in 1609, Kiyosu's importance was reduced and the castle was abandoned.

The castle standing today in Kiyosu is a copy built in 1989. Even though it is not located on the site of the former castle, it remains an important symbol for Kiyosu.
