|History||Ohno Castle was built in 1576 by Kanamori Nagachika who was stationed there by Oda Nobunaga. In 1586 Kanamori moved to Hida Takayama and from then on the lord of the castle changed frequently. The castle burned down in 1775 but was rebuilt in 1795 without the main keep. All but the stone walls were dismantled during the Meiji Period by command of the government.|
