Oma Castle Ruins

Oma Castle is said to have been built as a fortress for the clan of this area. The important characteristics of this castle is not its size, but rather its construction on difficult terrain with small ridges and creeks. The remaining features of the ruins are well-preserved, and are rare in the Joetsu region. You can see the enclosed earth foundation at the inner citadel, as well as spectaular empty moats and earth foundations that are representative of that era. Because it looks over the Kubiki plains, and is situated along the old national road ("Mikuni Kaido"), it played a crucial supporting role for Kasugayama Castle during the Warring States Era ("Sengoku Jidai"). Currently, these castle ruins have traces of wells, moats and foundations, and is commemorated as a Designated Historic Site of Joetsu City.
