Visit Notes

An old farmhouse now stands on the site of Amino-Shingozaemon-yashiki, a fortified residence site. There is a water channel running in front of the house, which also has a nice gate, and this is thought to have formerly been a moat. Some bloggers say there is dorui (earthen ramparts) here to the north. I went around the back of the site but couldn’t positively identify any ruins, even though there is indeed a small embankment of earth here in a copse. The yashiki site is along the ‘Takeda Shingen Walking Route’, which takes one through the countryside. On the yashiki site, which is now mostly fields, I also came across goats in a bamboo grove.
