Fujibayashi Residence

From Jcastle.info



The Fujibayashi were a branch family of the Fujibayashi in Iga and vassals of the Mochizuki in Koka. This residence was moved from near Koka Station to the Koka Ninja village. The house looks like a typical single level house but hides a mezzanine floor and another floor above. The house also has several other tricks, including a trap in the genkan, a drop ceiling that can easily but cut and dropped on attackers, and a secret passageway hidden beneath the hearth (irori).
