Kobinata Oh'yashiki

From Jcastle.info



Kobinata-Ôyashiki was site of the kyokan (residential area) attached to Misayamajō. See my profile on Misayama Castle for more information.

Visit Notes

Kobinata is a hamlet of Misayama Village, Matsumoto Municipality, overlooking the Metoba River. It is built over the ruins of the kyokan of Misayamajō, referred to as the Kobinata-Ôyashiki. It's quite scenic so I started taking photographs. On the mountainside there is a fair amount of stone-piled walling, probably used for terracing for agricultural purposes, possibly from the Edo Period and into the Meiji Period if it was used for mulberry orchards.
