Damine Castle, A Sengoku Site of Siege, Intrigue, Politics and War

Also known as Jazuga (Snake Head) or Ryunoshiro (Dragon’s Castle), Damine Castle was built circa 1470 on a hill overlooking the village of Damine in north-eastern Aichi Prefecture. It was constructed as a residence for the Suganuma clan, former retainers to the Imagawa clan, and then following the Imagawas defeat at the Battle of Okehazama (1560), the Tokugawa clan. In the mid 1500’s Takeda Shingen began encroaching on the Tokugawa held Mikawa lands, and the Suganuma clan again changed allegiances to that of the Takeda, despite those within the Suganuma clan, and samurai ranks who were against this change of sides.
