Iida-toride was constructed in the Sengoku Period by Iida Kyūnosuke.
The remains of this fort, Iida-toride, are small but remain in decent condition. Essentially the ruin is a forested space enclosed by dorui (earthen ramparts). The entrance to the site is a path running between vegetable patches called the ôte (main road), indicating the original entrance to the fortification. Probably there were originally moats either side of this path but they have been filled in for farmland. The site is otherwise borded by a water channel, rice paddies, a road, and a house with a dog that barked at me. Iida-toride is also called Iida-yakata. It is a municipal designated historic site.
