[Castle name]
Uozu Castle
a back-up castle for Matsukura Castle where Yasutake Shiina surrendered by betraying Kenshin Uesugi

Uozu Castle was a flatland castle in Uozu-shi, Toyama. It was owned by Yasutake Shiina during Sengoku era. The Shiina clan served for the Uesugi clan, so Uozu Castle was used as an assist for Matsukura Castle.

As Yasutake betrayed his master and started to work for Shingen Takeda, Matsukura and Uozu Castles fell by receiving intense attack by the Uesugi force. Kenshin’s minister, Nagachika Kawada was appointed for the chief of Uozu Castle.

When Kagekatsu succeeded to the Ueshugi clan, Shibata Katsuie and Narimasa Sassa, who were on the conquest of the Hokuriku region for Nobunaga Oda, took over Toyama Castle and laid siege to Uozu Castle. At the same time, Nobunaga Oda was murdered by his servant, Mitsuhide Akechi (Honnoji Incident).

Katsuie Shibata went back right away to avenge his master, Nobunaga, but it was Hideyoshi Hashiba who succeeded in murdering Mitsuhide Akechi. While Katsuie was gone, the Uesugi force won back the territories around Uozu Castle.

Narimasa Sassa laid siege to Uozu Castle once again in 1583, and the commander Mitsuchika Suda accepted defeat and gave up the castle. Narimasa Sassa took over the rulership of Ecchu.
