IWABITSU CASTLE HIGASHIGATSUMA
Iwabitsu Castle was a hilltop style Japanese Castle on Mt Iwabitsu in Higashigatsuma Gunma Prefecture. Iwabitsu Castle was contructed by the Azuma Taro Sukefusa in 15th century. In 1615 Tokugawa Ieyasu declared that each province could only have one castle, so Iwabitsu Castle was dismantled, so Ueda Castle could be retained. Today only earthworks from Iwabitsu Castle remain.
