Hokkyu Jin'ya

From Jcastle.info



Hokkyū-jin'ya was founded in 1651 by Ishikawa Fusauji, a hatamoto, to administer the township of Hokkyū. Hokkyū was valued at 3,000 koku, but Lord Fusauji's holdings later increased to 4,000 koku. The jin'ya functioned until the abolition of feudalism in the Meiji period.

Visit Notes

Hokkyū-jin'ya is a jin'ya site in Hokkyū Township, Okazaki Municipality. Now the site is a nursery, but the modest ishigaki (stone walls) were built for the jin'ya. There is also a signboard.
