Kasashima Castle was built as a naval fortress on the island of Honjima of the Shiwaku Islands. It started as the fortified home of Takashina Yasutou. It is said that Fukuda Mataijro, a relative of the Kagawa clan, was lord of the last in the late 16th century. The castle was abandoned after it was conquered by Chosakabe Motochika.
A very easy walk. Very little remains of the castle. The main reason to visit is for Kasashima Town's well-preserved historic district with buildings from the old castle town days. Profile and photos by Jcastle contributor Phibbyfan.
