[Site of the Nagashino Castle Ruins (Ruins of Nagashino Castle History Museum)]

Let's check out the history museum and the site of the Nagashino Castle Ruins to get the whole picture of the Battle of Nagashino and Shitaragahara

Nagashino Castle was built by Suganuma Motonari in 1508. The site was once an important transportation hub, and therefore saw a number of battles. It is especially known as the battlefield on which the Takeda army and Oda-Tokugawa allied armies fought fiercely in the Battle of Nagashino and Shitaragahara. Today, the site is maintained as castle ruins, and the remains of moats and earthworks are visible. You can also visit the Ruins of Nagashino Castle History Museum, which has been built on the site. Through the valuable historical materials displayed at the museum, you can gain deep knowledge about the history of the castle, from the ambitious plans of Takeda Shingen, who forced Suganuma Masasada to surrender the castle, to the Battle of Nagashino and Shitaragahara, in which a wide variety of military tactics were employed.
