Takiyama Castle (滝山城 Takiyama-jō?) is a castle structure in Hachiōji, Tokyo Prefecture, Japan.[1] Takiyama Castle was buitt by Ōishi Sadashige in 1521.[2] Hōjō Ujiteru expanded and improved the defence of the castle after he became lord.[3][4]

In 1569, Takeda Shingen attempted to seize the castle during the Siege of Todoriko, but failed due to its extensive fortifications.[3]

Takiyama Castle was abandoned when Hōjō Ujiteru moved his home castle to Hachiōji Castle.[4]

Current[]

The castle is now only ruins, just some moats and earthworks. A bridge between Honmaru base and Nakanomaru base was reconstructed.[2] The castle was listed as one of the Continued Top 100 Japanese Castles in 2017.[5]
