[Castle name]
Takashima Castle
From Hineno Takayoshi to Suwa orimizu, A beautiful castle called Takashima castle.

It was a castle that faced Lake Suwa, and it was Mizuki that protruded to the lake side before the Edo period. However, due to the development of tidal flats in the early Edo period, it was a little away from the lakeside. Another name is called “Suwa’s float castle” etc.

Although it was originally a residence of Suwa, when Tokugawa Ieyasu handed over the Kanto, Suwa was leaving Takashima and it was transferred to the country of Musashi. After that, Hineno came in on behalf of Suwa, but in 1601 Hineno was transferred to Mibu, and Suwa returned to this place again.

It seems that it was unnatural when I returned to my ancestral land. Then, Mr. Suwa entered Takashima Castle, and it will be greeting the Meiji Restoration. In addition, Suwa retained the land in the Edo Era, Tokugawa Ieyasu’s sixth son “Tadakita Matsudaira” was entrusted with him to keeping the “Yoshiharu Yoshiharu (grandchild of Kira Uenosuke)” in some cases.

The current castle tower is restored and it also serves as a museum, and Inner citadel is being maintained as Suwa Park. I also tried climbing up to the castle tower, but it was certainly located somewhere away from the shore of the lake. Before the tideland development, it was reminiscent of castle tower that the figure reflected on the waterside was beautiful indeed.
