【Special place to connect with Toyotomi Hideyoshi】

Ishigakiyama was originally called "Kasagakeyama", but Tensho 18 year (1590 year) Toyotomi Hideyoshu surrounded Mr. Hojo in Odawara with a large group of amphibious 15 million, and as its main point It is now called "Ishigakiyama" because it built a total stone wall castle.

When Toyotomi Hideyoshi built a fence and a tower framework in the forest of the summit at the time of the castle, she looked like a white wall by putting out a blank sheet, cut down surrounding trees overnight, and watched it Odawara castle in the castle Was surprised and lost his morale, it came to be called "Ishigakiyama overnight castle" or "Taiko one night castle".

However, in fact, a total of 4 people were mobilized, and it took about 18 days from April 4 to April 6 to build a castle.
When I was watching a number of stone walls that still remained, I was surprised that at that time, it was well done with manual labor in 80 days.
