Kitanosho Jyoshi Park
The Kitanosho Jyoshi Park is not only a park containing castle ruins but also a holy place that enshrines the spirits of Shibata Katsuie (a warlord of the Sengoku Period) and his wife, Oichi (the sister of Nobunaga Oda). They are said to have been enshrined where their home, Kitanosho Castle, once stood. The old stone walls of the castle can be seen on the park grounds. In 2010, a statue of the three Azai sisters (Chacha, Hatsu, Gō) was installed.
The statue imagines the sisters spending time in Fukui as young girls (aged fourteen, thirteen and ten.)
