 Nijo Castle landmark in Kyoto

In 1569, Nobunaga constructed Nijo Castle for shogun Ashikaga Yoshiaki.  When Yoshiaki was disposed in 1573, the castle fell into disuse.  However, Nobunaga did not let the buildings or materials go to waste as he used them for the construction of Azuchi Castle.  A very interesting relationship between Nijo and Azuchi.

Nobunaga no tame!
