|History||Odano Castle is often claimed to have been built by the Odano clan, who were vassals of Hojo Ujiteru, but there is no actual historical evidence to support this. It was built as a satellite fortification of Hachioji Castle to watch over the Jinba Kaido highway. In 1590 it was taken by Uesugi Kagekatsu just before the attack on Hachioji Castle.|
