Koriyama-jo Castle - Now antd Then
Ko­riyama-jo Castle was a Japanese castle in what is now the city of Yamato ko­riyama, Nara Prefecture. The Sengoku daimyo Tsutsui Junkei started construction of the castle, and Toyotomi Hidenaga made it his residence. In the Edo-era, it became the headquarters of the Ko­riyama Domain. During this time it was held by members of the Mizuno, Okudaira Matsudaira, Honda, Fujii Matsudaira, and Yanagisawa clans.

Today, many walls and moats are preserved in a public park in the city. The Yanagisawa Shrine stands on the grounds
