In the new era of Kenmu's new politics, the north-north dynasty, Mr. Kawamura is said to have cooperated with Mr. Nitta and confronted Mr. Takashi Ashikaga. From 1352 to 2 years, Hidekuni Kawamura and Hidenobu Kawamura and others stood in this castle, It is said that it surpasses the attack of Mr. Takashi Ashikaga.

It was a very unique event in which the descendants of Mr. Kawamura who lived nationwide participated. In 2019, Mr. Tetsuo Kawamura, former Secretary of the House of Representatives of the Liberal Democratic Party, and Takashi Kawamura, Mayor of Nagoya City, also participated.

Former Secretary General Kawamura, who spoke on behalf of the family, said, “I want to support Yamakita Town in the future so that Mr. Kawamura's summit where Mr. Kawamura gathers from all over the country can be held.”
