Akazawa-yakata was the fortified manor house of the Akazawa Clan. It was located near to Chausuyamajō which would offer a place to retreat to and defend from should the yakata come under attack. The Akazawa Clan would later relocate to Inakurajō, which is set much further up in the valley.
The former site of the fortified manor house of the Akazawa Clan is now a school; there is nothing to see. This site connects historically to several castle sites: Chausuyamajou, Hayaotoshijou, and possibly Yokoyairi-toride.
