Shiro Kyube

Shiro Kyube

Shiro Kyube was the ancestral castle of the Hosokawa family, and was named for the first Hosokawa, Ikoma Kyube. It served as a waypoint between many of the other more important sites within the Ikoma lands. There were several stables and its largest structure was a library. Near the castle several natural resources were worked, as fertile farmland and scattered deposits of gold and minerals. They were used to fund the Hosokawa's endless expeditions. [1] It was the largest structure in Ikota province until the construction of the Great Hall of Records in the 12th century. The heimin of this village were literate, skilled in scroll making. [2]
