This yakata is reckoned to have belonged to the Nariai Clan. It was bounded by a moat.

Visit Notes

This site has a curious name but there are no ruins here and the site is now a cemetery. There is a small marker post for the yakata erected by Azumino Municipality, although it refers to it as a yashiki. This was the eigth stop on my "Yakata Tour". Apparently moat ruins were identified here at one point but there was nothing much in the way of remains that I could see; there is a path at the side of the cemetery where the moat used to run but it doesn't look very moat-ish, having no depth, so this is a "hori-ato (moat trace)" I suppose.
