What is SHIROZEME?

The castle is beautiful and magnificent. Today, we admire our predecessors for building such huge structures. But are we really grasping the importance of the wisdom of our ancestors? This castle was a fortress, built with centuries of wisdom and knowhow, putting their very lives on the line. It's time to learn with our minds and feel with our hearts as we lay siege to the castle! This is "Eagle Talon's SHIROZEME."

Eagle Talon's SHIROZEME

The memorable first event will be held at Matsue Castle, located in Shimane, a place with deep affinity for Eagle Talon's chief character: Yoshida. Besieging and guarding, you will learn the greatness of the castle.
