Murakami Kaizoku was the ancient navy playing the significant roles mainly in the areas of the West Seto Inland Sea from the Muromachi to the Sengoku period (approx.1338-1590). There are many resided castle ruins of the Innoshima Murakami clan in Innoshima.
Those castles were constructed on the top of the mountain to watch the islands and to monitor the passing boats. At present, the castles as a whole do not remain, but through Kirigishi (artificially created steep cliff) and flattened grounds, it can provoke our imagination of that time.
