Yakushidōjō was part of a network of fortifications used by the Koide Clan situated on the tall river terrace overlooking the Tenryūgawa. Particularly it was the most southerly of a trio of fortifications to the south of the Koide Clan's main base. For more information see Ina Koide Castle.

Visit Notes

According to my sources there should be tatebori here at Yakushidōjō but I didn't see them. The bluff is advantageous enough, I suppose, but I couldn't identify castle ruins. The site is just rice paddies today. The level area at the top of the cliff is wide, but it is divided in half north-to-south by an elevated embankment.
