The Ochiai-yakata is one of many residences of Takeda Clan governors of Kai Provinces from throughout the medieval period. It predates the Kawada-yakata which replaced it. In 1491 Takeda Nobumasa retired to Ochiai-yakata.

Visit Notes

The site of Ochiai-yakata is now a housing block surrounding an orchard. I found some old cenotaphs and a fine old gatehouse, but nothing definitively related to the yakata. There were some curious mounds that seemed to have been part of a long segment of piled earth but I guess that could be all sorts of things; all castling reports I read state that no ruins remain here.
