Daiun'in-doi is thought to have a been built as a residence of the Fukazawa Clan by Fukazawa Hachirōemon or Fukazawa Rokurōbē in 1532; the castellan also founded the temple of Daiun'in, for which this fortification site is named. In the late Sengoku period, Daiun'in-doi was a satellite fortification of Fukazawajō; both were destroyed in 1582.
For more information see Fukazawa Castle.
There is a parking area and small park opposite the temple Daiun'in which is surrounded by dorui (earthen ramparts) which is overgrown with bamboo. This is the remains of a fort and residence site called Daiun'in-doi. The obscure term 'doi' conjures up an image of piled earth surrounding a residence, or that of medieval defensive earthworks. The temple's sanmon (main gate) is also said to be a relocated structure from Fukuzawajō, of which Daiun'in-doi was a satellite fortification.
