Oshi Castle Ruins, which is considered one of the seven main strongholds of the Kanto region, was first built by the Narita clan in the second half of the 15th century in the Muromachi Period. Toward the end of the Warring States Period in the late 16th century, when Toyotomi Hideyoshi was nearing consolidation of power over the Kanto Region, this castle bravely withstood the “flooding attack” by Ishida Mitsunari, one of Hideyoshi’s retainers. This episode is depicted in the novel “Nobo-no-shiro”, and its screen version attracted a lot of viewers. Today, the three-story turret of the castle, “Gosankai Yagura”, houses exhibition rooms of the Gyoda City Museum, and you can enjoy a great view of the city from the top of the tower.
