The ending point of the route will be at a farm. Opposite of this viewing point is a construction area. Here you want to walk to the right of the tents.
Walking towards the castle ruins you will soon run into a 'T' intersection along the walking path.
Getting little closer to the 'T' intersection on the walking path,.
This is at the 'T' Intersection. Here you make a left to the castle ruins. To the right is someones resident and an 'utaki' (sacred place for praying)
As you are walking to the ruins, you will still have the tent farms to your left. At the end you will see some mud steps to the right.
Slightly in the middle are mud steps that take you to the ruins.
Up on top you will a lot of large stones and rocks and some beaten and unbeaten paths.
One of the unbeaten paths that takes you around the site.
You will see many Elephant plants on the grounds.
Many rocks piled into something of a wall. It's not certain when these stones were placed. Some large rocks seem like they have been there for a long time while some may be part of a reconstruction effort. There were tape markers tied around trees.
Make-shift stone wall
Looking out towards the horizon. Most castle ruins are built on high ground where they have an advantageous view of the territory. The trail to t the edge was too over grown with vegetation and thus not sure what kind of view they had.
You may see signs in Japanese. You will see about two of these before you reach the ending point of the vehicle route.
This sign is off the Highway 505 and is in English Letters. It says 'Shiinagusuku'.
From the Highway 505, the castle ruins is about 1.2 Km in distance.
