A lot of medieval castle ruins were seen in and around Noubi Plain (south of Gifu Prefecture and west of Aichi Prefecture) and Mikawa, in 1960s. In the 16th century, the warlords who lived in these castles became vassals of Oda Nobunaga and Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Forty years have elapsed since then. The land was developed and most of the castle ruins disappeared. I photographed these remains in my boyhood. The remains do not exist now，but I have many photographs and see them even now. First, I would like to introduce those pictures of castle remains，and aerial photos next. I also introduce cadastral maps, drawing map made in Edo period, and the books on cultural assets. I want to imagine the old state of those castles with those pictures and books and my heart goes out to the history, preservation and destruction of the ruins.
