The history of the site is not well known, but, according to one theory, it was the fortified residence of the Wada Clan. The Wada Clan controlled nearby Wada Township.
There is just a stone marker here. It's something at least. I was coming by this way and thought I would check out the site. That was last year. At the time I couldn't find any information on it. But I stumbled across a snippet of information involving the Wada Clan. The neighbourhood is called Tono.
