Odawara Castle History and Culture Walk

Western Area 16h45m 31

During the Siege of Odawara, the reason the Hojo clan was able to hold their own against Hideyoshi's 148,000 troops for three months was all due to the outer enclosure of the castle. The castle's 9-kilometer long circumference still retains traces of that period. The Hojo clans' fortifications are also said to have set an example for castle building in later periods. Earthworks, traces of moats... The Warring States period is alive right here.
