Remains of the Total Structure of Odawara Castle
The structure was built for defense by the Hojo clan, the clan who ruled the entire Kanto region from Odawara, in preparation for the Battle of Odawara with Hideyoshi Toyotomi at the end of the Sengoku period (1467-1615). The moat and earthen walls surround the castle and castle town with a circumference of 9km. The Toyotomi army besieged the castle for about three months before the Hojo clan surrendered to the army of 180,000. A part of the structure still remains today.
