Ikeda Yakata (Omi)
Ikeda-yakata was the fortified manor hall of the Ikeda Clan. One lord of the manor was Ikeda Gen'wemon. The Ikeda were vassals of the Gamō Clan.
The site of Ikeda-yakata is now that of the temple Ikefukuji. Some piles of earth surround the temple which appear to be the remains of dorui (earthen ramparts). It is thought moats were once located in what are now surrounding rice paddies.
