Jikki-yashiki is so called because Takeda Shingen is said to have stationed ten guards here during the Sengoku period. The yashiki was located atop of a jutting plateau along an important trade route between Kai Province and Shinano Province via Saku County.
Jikki-yashiki, a medieval fortified residence site in the Minowa area of Takane Township in Hokuto Municipality, Yamanashi Prefecture, has no remains. There is a hilltop on the plateau with rice paddies beneath. It’s hard to tell how much the landscape has been altered. Was the hilltop fortified with a residence below?
