This “Street Corner Watching” is an introduction to “Gasantomita Castle”.
It is August 31, 2020.
I’m visiting the Adachi Museum of Art in Yasugi City, Shimane Prefecture, to capture the best garden in Japan in a video.
I want to feel the four seasons with my skin.
Previously, I shot the winter version.
Due to the influence of the new corona, the spring version has become difficult to enter and move across prefectures, so I refrained from doing so.
Regulations have also been relaxed, so I went out to shoot the last summer version.
Before that, I stopped by because there is Gassantoda Castle in the mountainous area of the Adachi Museum of Art from Route 9.
Tomita Castle is a typical mountain castle with a main enclosure on Mt. Gassan (elevation 191.5m).
There is no castle tower, so it is not well known.
However, it is now an attractive castle ruin for Yamashiro enthusiasts.
It has also been designated as one of Japan’s Five Great Mountain Castles.
The remaining four are Nanao Castle (Noto Province)
Kannonji Castle (Omi Province)
Kasugayama Castle (Echigo Province)
It is Hachioji Castle (Musashi Province).
By the way, Gasantomita Castle is Izumo Province.
The Amago clan ruled the Sanin region during the Muromachi period, when the Onin War broke out.
The castle is Gasantomita Castle.
It was said to be an impregnable castle until it fell to the Mori clan, who ruled the Chugoku region during the Warring States period.
Shikanosuke Yamanaka, who was said to be one of the three great nobles of the Amago family, has excellent courage and is known as the “Kirinji of the Sanin”.
It is a famous anecdote to pray in the crescent moon, “Hopefully, give me seven hardships” for the revival of the Amago clan.
In the San’in region around this time, hot days of over 35 degrees Celsius continue.
At the same time, with the new corona, we are also wearing a mask, so it is necessary to take measures against heat stroke.
Due to time constraints, I have no plans to go to Honmaru.
At Senjonari, I enjoyed the coolness of the babbling of the Iinashi River flowing under my eyes.
I visited the Amako Shrine and returned to the Adachi Museum of Art.
If you have a private car, it doesn’t take much time from the Adachi Museum of Art.
If you are a castle enthusiast, please drop in.
