Ishida-jin’ya was constructed in 1648 by Suganuma Sadataka (定賞). It consisted of walls and a nagaymon (row-gatehouse).
When bannerman Suganuma Sadāki of Tanba died in 1647 without an heir, the Shogunate granted a fief of 7,000 koku to his younger brother Sadami (Shinshiro-jin’ya), and 3,000 koku to Sadataka. Sadataka became a bannerman of the Shogunate.

Nothing remains of Ishida-jin’ya, a small jin’ya site in Ishida village, Shinshiro Municipality, and the site is now homes and fields. Some stone walls are built around a rural homestead, likely piled with stones from the riverbed of the Toyokawa, but they likely don’t date to the Edo period. The site sits on a terrace, and I tried to photograph its steep embankments from below, though the place was overgrown.
