Saburouhora Castle (Chikuma)
Saburōhorajō was a branch fort of Kattorijō. See Chikuma Kattori Castle for more information.
There is nothing to see. The site is mentioned on the explanation board for Kattorijō, albeit not as a castle itself. Some sources list it as a castle, and some simply list it without a suffix. Given its location in or near a small valley beneath taller peaks, it may have been a fortified residence. The site is now that of a weir. Below is farmland.
