Odawara Castle - Sogamae


The sogamae refers to the outer ring of defenses developed by the Hojo against attacks from Hideyoshi and his allies. The 9km network of defenses was so impressive that some of the lords who saw it took the idea back home after the Siege of Odawara to help fortify their own castles.

Here is a map to the Sogamae: https://odawaracastle.com/global-image/units/upfiles/304-1-20171016150531_b59e44c2bc1c75.pdf
