Yabarahigashimura Horinōchi was the medieval fortified residence of one Yabara Tarō, a minor feudalist. The yashiki was about 50m² in area, typical of the locale, ensconced by a dry moat with earthen ramparts. The moat was not as wide as at the nearby Hosogaya-yakata.

Visit Notes

There are still ruins after all this time at this medieval fortified residence. A ditch-like karabori (dry moat) and dorui (earthen ramparts) are to be found. The site is now a modern residence, and the dorui is tallest in the west, but it goes around to the north as part of a garden. It's clear that the plot has long been occupied because the road reaching it is suddenly forced to bend around.
