Yamamoto-jin’ya is the (claimed) birthplace of Yamamoto Kansuke, the enigmatic general under Takeda Shingen. To be precise, it is the site originally of the Yoshino Clan’s residence, Yoshino-yashiki, under Yoshino Sadayuki who would also adopt the name Yamamoto after the name of the area in which he lived. Yamamoto Kansuke, also called Yamamoto Haruyuki, was the son of Yamamoto Sadayuki. Yamamoto-jin’ya was established in the Edo period by members of the Yoshino Clan, and the nagayamon (rowhouse-gate) is an extant structure from the time of the jin’ya. The site is located on ground somewhat elevated in relation to the road, and supported by stone-piled retaining walls, or ishigaki.

Visit Notes

It should be noted that there are various origin stories for Yamamoto Kansuke, and Yamamoto Sadayuki also moved about a lot, so that different places each claim to be the birthplace of Yamamoto Kansuke. The Kōyōgunkan (甲陽軍鑑) says that Kansuke was born in Ushikubo, Mikawa Province, but the Edo period Kai-Kunishi (甲斐国志) says that he was born in Yamamoto, Suruga Province, and adopted (kept hostage?) by Ôbayashi Kanzaemon, lord of Ushikubo Castle. Still other birthplaces are contended: the Hokuetsu Gundan (北越軍談) indicates Terabe, Mikawa, and the Ushikubo Mitsudanki (牛窪密談記) indicates Kamo, Mikawa, though the latter is said to be less credible.
