Visit Notes

Kakuhari-yashiki is a medieval fortified residence site. There is a signboard detailing the site but no ruins remain. The site is now fields and a house. When I first came a boy was whipping a bottle full of water around on what looked to be an improvised fishing rod, his little sister chastising him. I tried to quickly take a photograph of the house’s stonewalls – not related to the medieval residence but what I like to consider ‘compensatory ishigaki’ – but I was still wearing my bell from when I was up at Inōejō and it jingled, alerting the children to my presence. The children spun about and noticed me next to the signboard at the end of their drive. The children stopped and stared. I made a show of reading the sign. The children continued to stare. I awkwardly said in a cheery tone “Konnichiwa... Fushinsha desu”. HAHA. I joke! I only said ‘Hello’, but the children were not to be won over. Luckily I passed by a little bit later after visiting Takenojō and was able to take some pictures without them there.
