Nozaki Castle




Early records indicate a castle on this site in the 1470's during the Onin Wars. After the founding of Iimori Castle it became a fort of Iimori Castle. Refer to Iimori Castle for more details.

Visit Notes

At the eastern end of Iimori Castle, overlooking the Higashi Koya Highway, you'll find Nozaki Castle. It is not very big and there are not many remains to see today, but it was an important point to watch over the highway and to help protect the route into Iimori Castle. If you go to Iimori Castle from Nozaki Station this is right along the way. There is one main bailey, a couple small side baileys made into lookout points today, and one horikiri just before entering the castle site.
