Watauchi-Inōe-yakata, also called Oyanagi-Inōe-yakata, is another Inōe Clan residence site. It was the residence of the Watauchi branch of the Inōe Clan. It was built between the conjoining of two waterways which added to its strategic positioning. It is thought that the yakata was built after the Inōe expanded their territory into this area. The yakata is estimated to have measured around 100m by 50m in a simple rectangular formation. The moats were 10m wide. For more information see Inoue Castle.

Visit Notes

Watauchi-Inōe-yakata, also called Oyanagi-Inōe-yakata, is another Inōe Clan residence site. There is clearly an embankment of piled earth here which looks to have served as part of the fortified manor hall’s earthen ramparts. The fields below are about the width of moats, giving a nice indication of the scale of the site. Next to the yakata site is a shrine, Kōchi-jinja, with some old architecture and large trees.
