Kai-Kazama-yashiki was the residence of the Kai-Kazama Clan who served as part of the Kurokawa-Kinzanshū, which was one of several groups of warrior prospectors who inhabited Yamanashi County and swore fealty to the Takeda Clan.

Visit Notes

Up until very recently an intact residence site remained here, what looked to be an old home surrounded by neatly groomed dorui (earthen ramparts) and gate ruin. However, the site has recently been destroyed. Some traces of dorui may remain but the prognosis does not look good. Another minor local history site has been lost senselessly.
