Yoshida Castle (Ibaraki)
Founded by the Yoshida Clan, vassals of the Daijō Clan. In 1590 when the Satake Clan defeated the Edo Clan at Mito Castle, Yoshida Castle was abandoned.
Now the site of Jōshōji (a temple). Along the temple causeway should be trenches but I didn't see them unfortunately, probably due to the overgrowth in summer. Picture shows approach to temple.
