Ishiwatajō was a fortified residence of the Takanashi Clan who were hegemonic in the area.

Visit Notes

Ishiwata-yakata is a fortified manor hall site in the Ishiwata neighbourhood on the outskirts of urban Nagano. The site today is an old rural residence and vegetable patches. There is an embankment on the grounds of the residence which I suspected could be dorui (earthen rampart) remains, but I cannot confirm that at this time.
