It is thought that this was the manor hall for the use of the commander of Arashijō in the mountains above. See Arashi Castle for more information. The lord of the manor would've been a vassal of the Ogasawara clan.

Visit Notes

Uenodan-yakata, the site of a fortified manor, is now fields and orchards adjacent to some shrines. The area is terraced and agricultural but the upper terraces are the former site of a fortified manor house. There is a small terraced space 20m long which could be considered the upper bailey, and below it a wider one, 80m long, which is the lower bailey. The sloped embankments here represent what's left of the earthworks which fortified the site.
