Chausu Yama Castle Ruins Park
With an elevation of 42 meters, Chausu Mountain is named because the shape resembles a mortar used to grind tea leaves.
This cone-shaped mountain stands alone, with the top of the mountain a flat area of about 35 meters in diameter.
In the southwest is the entrance to the Chausu Yama Castle ruins. 10 meters further is the second wall, and on the eastern side is a 2.5 meter wide well.
It is said that Chausu Yama, which was a fortification castle for Kasugayama Castle, fell during the turbulance that came when choosing Uesugi Kenshin's successor.
The master of the castle, Teshima, escaped from the wetlands of Ogata to Kakizaki beach.
