Akizuki Domain South Detached Palace
The Akizuki-han Minami-go'ten (Akizuki Domain Southern Palace) is a detached palatial ruin dating to the Late Edo Period located on the opposite side of some foothills from Akizuki Castle. There is a flattened area at the foot of a hill with ishigaki (stone-piled ramparts) on three sides.
More ishizumi (stone-pilings) can be found on the hillside and below, adjacent to a small waterway, although their stones may have been recycled and replaced over the years.
