Visit Notes

Komaruyama-toride is a very minor fort site, part of the Murakami Pearl Fort Network, located on the terminus of a mountain limb. Actually a motorway now runs below and it is thought that most of the fort was destroyed by its construction; I could find no clear ruins here unfortunately.
