Chofuku Castle was built as a midway fort between Gion Castle and Washi Castle. See the history of those two castles for more details.

Visit Notes

There is only a small stone pillar to indicate a castle was here. There is some earthen embankment type structure across the street but it's not known for sure if it's from the castle or not.
