Visit Notes

Yamabukikojō is a small fortification ruin located down hill from the main castle, Yamabukiôjō. Yamabukikojō provided forward defence for the larger castle. It's arrangement is a simple ladder layout with the main enclosure at the top, the secondary enclosure in the middle, and the tertiary enclosure at the bottom. The top and bottom baileys both have koshikuruwa (sub-baileys) around them at lower elevation. The middle enclosure is fairly narrow and mostly serves to connect the top and bottom of the castle. Each bailey is separated by a trench.
