The Fukuzawa were vassals of the Murakami Clan and helped to capture and guard Toishi Castle.

Visit Notes

I was happy to come to the site of the fortified manor hall of the Fukuzawa Clan, Fukuzawa-yakata, because the day before I had tried to reach the Fukuzawa-demaru at Toishi Castle which is named for them. This then is the old base of the Fukuzawa, vassals of the Murakami Clan, who fought bravely for them at Toishi. Unfortunately I could find no ruins; the site today is fields and homes. The Bingushinosatō Park is nearby. The terrain is favourable with tall mountains enclosing it except to the east where it faces the plain.
