Amagasaki Castle

Amagasaki Castle was a 16th-century flatland type castle, in Amagasaki, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. It is now in ruins.

Toda Ujikane built the castle in 1617. There was an earlier, smaller castle, originally built by the Hosokawa clan, in the Sengoku period on site. Amagasaki Castle was built around it. The site was strategic in that there were two rivers flowing into the ocean, which the castle was near, and the moat was connected to the river and had boat landings.
