Tateyama Castle
Tateyama castle was built by Yoshiyori Satomi who was from the southern edge of Chiba prefecture

The construction of Tateyama castle was started by Yoshiyori Satomi in 1580. Until then the Satomi-family flourished in Inamura castle, and it is said that when Yoshitaka Satomi owned Kururi castle was the peak of the family. In 1614, when Yoshiyasu Satomi was the lord, Satomi-shi was subject to Kaieki and Tateyama domain was dismissed.
