Kochi Castle
Kochi Castle was the castle that Kazutoyo Yamauchi received after his achievement at the battle of Sekigahara

Kazutoyo Yamauchi received Tosa from Ieyasu Tokugawa because of his achievement at the battle of Sekigahara, and he entered Urado castle that was owned by Motochika and Morichika Chosokabe at that time. But in 1601 he started to build a new castle on mount Otakasaka, and when Honmaru and Ninomaru were completed in 1603, he moved there from Urado castle.

Tosa was territory of Motochika and Morichika Chosokabe, so he struggled to govern Tosa. He applied a strict class system, where Chosokabe-shi’s former retainers were to be Goshi, and the vassals of the Yamauchi family were classified as Joshi.
