[Castle name]
Yuki Castle
Yuki castle was where Ujitomo Yuki’s one year besiegement against the Ashikaga Bakufu troops occurred

[Explanation]
Yuki castle was a castle that Yuki-shi continued to own. When Kamakura Kubo’s Mochiuji Ashikaga died in 1440 at Eikyo war, his son went to Yuki-shi to ask for protection, and Ujitomo and Mochitomo Yuki decided to patronize him.

Because of this they were attacked by Ashikaga Bakufu troops, and went through besiegement for more than a year. However they eventually lost and Yuki-shi fell, but in 1447 when Shigeuji Ashikaga was permitted to restore Kamakura Kubo, Yuki-shi was permitted to be rebuilt as well.

From this point on Yuki-shi continued to rule Kanto region, survived through Sengoku period, and adopted Ieyasu’s second son Hideyasu after Ieyasu Tokugawa’s defeat. When Hideyasu was sent to Echizen later on, Yuki castle was demolished.

Right now the form of the castle does not remain, but you can picture it by looking at the moat and the ruins of Kuruwa that still remain.
