Aoya-guchi Entrance

This entrance is located at the back of the castle. This area is an inauspicious direction according to a superstition, so a Kimen-seki (demon face stone), a.k.a. Jinmen-seki (human face stone) or Jumen-seki (animal face stone) is embedded in the stone wall to ward off evil. Please look for it with a guide.
