See Yamura Castle for the history leading up to the establishment of Yamura Jin'ya. After the Yamura Domain was disbanded, the area came under direct control of the bakufu in 1704.
There is really nothing to see here besides the commemorative pillar located at a corner in front of the family courthouse. If you're visiting the area Katsuyama Castle should be your goal. This is just a complementary site of interest to the history of Yamura Castle and Katsuyama Castle.
