猪苗代城 Inawashiro-jyo Inawashiro Castle

Jp En

The remains of Inawashiro Castle are in Inawashiro, Yama, in Fukushima Prefecture.

Sawara Tsunetsura built the castle in 1191. In 1589, the Ashida Family and the Sawara Family challenged the Date Family to an all-out war, but they were both annihilated. Henceforth, the castle's lords changed one after another.

In 1643, Hoshina Masayuki was confined at Aizu, and until Matsudaira Katamori the Ninth came, the Jodai Shihai Taisei (Jodai Control system) continued until the Meiji Restoration. In 1868, Inawashiro Castle went up in flames during the Boshin War, which led to the castle's downfall.

This castle was built on top of a hill that projected southeast from Mt Bandai toward the Inawashiro Basin. This was an important area that connected the Aizu and Nakaduri regions, and has always been important strategically.

Inawashiro Castle is currently a park, where visitors can look back on the historical battles that took place on this land.
