Kitanosho Castle Ruins Shibata Park

Castle / Ruins of Castle
A park on the site of the former Kitanosho Castle. In 1575 Shibata Katsuie was given control of the Echizen area by Oda Nobunaga and he had Kitanosho castle on the plains constructed. It was a magnificent castle with a nine-story tower and a large castle town surrounding it but fell just eight years later when attacked by the army of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. In the park are bronze statues of Shibata Katsuie, his wife Oichi, and their three daughters. Some historical remains including Onigawara roof tiles and chains from a pontoon bridge still remain.
