Yoshida-jô 吉田城
Toyohashi City


J 266 449

Yoshida-jô (formerly Imahashi-jô) in Toyohashi was built by Makino Kôhaku in 1505. Ikeda Terumasa, one of the feudal lords, was transfered to the castle in 1590. He began to build a splendid fortress worthy of his high income. But Ikeda was transfered to another castle about ten years later, leaving this project uncompleted. Afterwards, this area enjoyed a long peaceful period and a castle became unneccessary - Yoshida-jô remained uncompleted. Nowadays, there are mossy stone walls and one remaining turret where the historical building stood.
