This area has been untouched and is the place where Toyotomi Hideyoshi built his castle in a strategic spot. Many people call it the one night Castle. Cause it appeared that he builds it over night though it really was over 3 months. There isn’t much to see but if you’re a history buff then it’s pretty awesome to stand where many of the lords of Japan met. If you can go with a guide or a friend who knows the history you can enjoy it more.

In 1590, Toyotomi Hideyoshi built a hilltop castle for his blockade of Odawara Castle. According to tradition, trees were finally cleared to reveal Hideyoshi’s castle, hence the popular “One Night Castle” name. Meanwhile, in Odawara Castle, the Hōjō clan leaders debated whether to fight or surrender. (Even today the term “Odawara Conference”, Odawara Hyoujou, おだわら ひょうじょう, is a Japanese business proverb for “an endless discussion with no outcome”). Finally, with superior forces, Toyotomi Hideyoshi defeated the Hōjō clan, and forced the elder leader Hōjō Ujimasa and his brother Ujiteru to commit suicide. (The graves of the Hōjō brothers can still be seen in downtown Odawara next to the present-day Hotel POSH!). Today, the ruins of Hideyoshi’s One Night Castle (Ishigakiyama Ichiyajō, 石垣山一夜城) have been turned into a peaceful park, with shady wooded areas and grass lawns. This hilltop park gives spectacular views of nearby hills, the Odawara urban area and out over Sagami Bay. During the weekends and holidays of the spring and autumn tourist seasons (too hot and humid in the summer!), a sightseeing bus (小田原宿観光回遊バス) leaves from the east exit of the Odawara railway station and follows a circular route to/from the One-night castle and other attractions — for the bus schedule, check at the station tourist center or search Google for “小田原宿観光回遊バス”. To reach the park at other times, local groups generally hike uphill from the Hayakawa Railway Station. For Western visitors, a less-confusing urban/rural route is as follows: From the Odawara Railway Station, take the Odakyu train towards Hakone Yumoto and get off at the first stop (Hakone Itabashi, はこねいたばし、箱根板橋) Exit this railway station and turn left onto the main road (National Route 1, locally known as Ichigo-sen). Ahead, a large green sign for the Toyo Tires Turnpike (TOYO TIRES ターンパイク) points left, as does a smaller blue sign for the One Night Castle (石垣山一夜城 ). Take the road to the left and pass over the Odakyu railway tracks and under the Seisho Bypass highway. Cross the Hayakawa River and continue for two blocks until a large green sign points ahead to the Toyo Tires Turnpike entrance, and a blue One Night Castle sign points to the left. Turn left and walk towards the Shinkansen bridge that crosses the road ahead. Just before the Shinkansen bridge, turn right onto a small side road. After about 70 metres, take the second small road to the right. This concrete road heads steeply uphill passing through mikan (mandarin orange) orchards for about 1.7 km. Finally, on the left, there is a parking area for a restaurant/farm market (一夜城ヨロイジカファーム), and on the right is the entrance to the One Night Castle Historical Park (石垣山一夜城歴史公園). Be sure to enjoy the tranquility and viewpoints of the park, while contemplating the important history of the stone castle ruins at this site.

Only some foss and foundation stones remain in calm historical park. You can see nice view which contains Odawara city, Pacific ocean, Enoshima, and, even Chiba prefecture. And, you can learn the last battle in Azuchi-Momoyama era.
