My good Okehazama researcher friend Seishiro Mizuno has written a new article on Kuroda Castle. http://ow.ly/LFUxg
Kuroda Castle was the birthplace of Yamauchi Kazutoyo (father was Moritoyo), who later served Nobunaga. The castle was built during the Meio Era (1492-1501) by Goto Mitsumasa. The castle landmark is not far from JR Kisogawa Station, a five minute walk. One can see the symbol of the Yamauchi house, the oak leaf (kashi) all over the landmark area.
