Visit Notes

Ôsakidejō, as the name suggests, is a satellite fortification of Ôsakijō on the same ridge to the north. It is a single bailey fort complex with terracing beneath the front of the bailey, and a deep trench bisecting the ridge to the rear. The bailey is overgrown but one can see that it is a small bailey snugly surrounded by dorui (earthen ramparts).

  • Rear trench beneath singular main bailey
