Minowa Castle Ruins箕輪城跡

Castle / Ruins of Castle

These famous castle ruins are located approximately 30 minutes from the Kan’etsu Expressway Takasaki Interchange and Maebashi Interchange. Minowa castle was built in the Sengoku Period by Nagano Narimasa. It was known as an impregnable castle that prevented Takeda Shingen’s attacks numerous times but was abandoned in the time of Ii Naomasa. The ruins of the castle gate, wall and drainage system remain, and many are unchanged from when the castle was governed by Ii Naomasa. It was designated as a national Historic Site in 1987 and selected as one of Japan’s top 100 castles. There is a battle event every year in October, during the Minowa Castle Festival, where the warriors form two groups, Takeda side and Nagano side, which try to attack and defend the castle.

          Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
