The Miyachi-yashiki was an Edo period yashiki, constructed in 1603, used to house the officiates and caretakers of Inugashira-jinja, a shrine located to the south. The yashiki was abandoned sometime during the Bakumatsu period. Honda Shigetsugu was born in the area in 1529.

Visit Notes

The site of Miyachi-yashiki is now a residential area, but some dorui (earthen ramparts) are believed to remain around an old home, albeit now lined with modern-style stone-piled retaining walls. To the south is the ‘Dog’s Head Shrine’, a related historical site. The shrine has a stele commemorating it as the birthplace of Honda Shigetsugu (1529-1596).

Note: this site is Miyachi-yashiki in historical Nukata County, not to be confused with Miyachifuru Yashiki in historical Hekikai County, both in Mikawa Province / Aichi Prefecture.
