Sightseeing place  

Iwasaki Castle

Iwasaki Castle is said to have been built during the Kyoroku Period (1528-1531) and is an example of the hirayamajiro (hill-on-the-plain) style. During the Komaki-Nagakute Campaign, over 300 lost their lives in battle, and the castle fell. In 1987, the castle was rebuilt as an observation tower, and a historical museum for the exhibition of documents related to Iwasaki Castle and the cultural history of Nissin was completed.
