[Castle name]
Tendo Castle
Yorizumi Tendo’s castle that was destroyed by Yoshiaki Mogami

Satomi from Mogami clan was the first one to take control of Tendo Castle and the city of Tendo. They started calling themselves as Tendo and prospered for generations.

This led to conflicts over territories with the royal family “Yoshiaki Mogami”. Yoshiaki attacked Tendo Castle led by Yorizumi Tendo.

After a fierce battle, Tendo Castle fell under the hands of Yoshiaki. The castle remained abandoned for some time, but Nobukatsu Oda’s descendant took control from 1830 to Meiji Restoration.

Pressured by the New government force, Tendo han, led by Daihachi Yoshida, attacked Shounai han, but lost the castle due to a counter-attack.

※Daihachi Yoshida commited suicide when Mutsu, Dewa, Echigo joined forces

After joining forces with Mutsu, Dewa, and Echigo in anguish, they surrendered to the new government forces right away.
This is how Oda survived through the chaos during Bakumatsu.

Tendo han produced 20,000 goku.
Currently, the remnants of the castles are nowhere to be seen.
