Katsuyama Castle Guidance Facility
Katsuyama Castle was built about 500 years ago by Nobuhiro Takeda. It served as the base for politics, military affairs and trade in tnorthern Japan.
Katsuyama Castle was a very unusual place, because the Wajin(=people who came from the main island of Japan) and the Ainu(=people who originally lived in Hokkaido) were thought to have co-existed here together.
The replicas of tombs and the resources from the history of Katsuyama Castle are shown in this Guidance Facility. This is the only place where you can understand and experience the 15th-16th century of Hokkaido.
①The tombs of the Wajin in a crouched position with their head facing to the north

③Cremation tomb and facility
④Tombs located around Iozan
