Hilltop Castles / 平山城

This is a subtype of Castle Type

Hilltop Castles are probably the ideal castle type, in my opinion. If there is a suitable hill or small mountain to build a castle on it allows the lord the ability to take advantage of the difference in elevation and natural features of the land to create defenses, as well as the ability to double up with the extensive moats of a Flatland Castles. The much more accessible site provides the lord with a more suitable location for administration and the ability to develop a castle town surrounding the castle, which itself can act as a defensive perimeter. Iyo Matsuyama Castle and Himeji Castle are two exemplary original castles which display all these features. The Hilltop Castle is also known for reforming the land and carving the hill to meet the purposes of the castle, much more significantly than a Mountaintop Castle likely would have.
