Furumaya Yakata

From Jcastle.info



Furumaya-yakata was the fortified manor hall of the Furumaya Clan. The Furumaya Clan were established by Nishina Morikane, the third son of Nishina Morikuni. Lord Morikane was defeated at Koiwatake Castle by Takeda Shingen in 1552. Survivors of the clan then followed the Nishina Clan who had pledge fealty to Takeda Shingen. In 1567, Furumaya Moritaka took over the clan. In 1582, he was reinstated at Koiwatakejō following the fall of the Takeda Clan. In 1583, he was caught plotting against the resurgent Ogasawara with the lords of Tounohara Castle and Shinagura Castle, summoned to Matsumoto Castle by Ogasawara Sadayoshi, and there executed.

Visit Notes

Nothing remains of this fortified medieval manor house except maybe some earthen embankments, though I couldn't get a good look. Much of the site is now private property, including of some fetching rural houses.
