The Tenjin castle is a small castle located in Nagatoro-cho, chichibu, saitama pref. It is said that The lord of the castle was Fujita Yasukuni who had been a retainer with Uesuji Yamauchi, and he gave the Tenjin castle to a son of Houjo Ujiyasud who had been adopted in 1550. And it is said that this castle fell to the enemy in 1590.
In 1970, for the purpose of attracting attention from the public, the imitation keep of the castle was build on the site where the honmaru(the main keep of a castle) used to be on. However, it turned out that this business couldn’t pay afterward, this building has been forgotten since then.
Now, nobody looks after this place, so floors and ceilings are left collapsed, it’s totally abandoned.
埼玉県、長瀞町の小高い山の上に” 天神山城 “はあります。
1590年に落城した本丸が存在した跡に、観光用として城を復元しました。しかし観光事業は失敗し、2階建ての小さな模造の城は完全に廃墟になってしまいました。近くに” 天神山観光センター “ という味気ない廃墟もあります。
