Visit Notes

Kōdaiji-rui is one of several fortification sites in the Nakada Township, Nirasaki Municipality. It is also now the only one with ruins which can be positively identified. The temple Kōdaiji, for which the site is named, is partially surrounded by dorui (earthen ramparts), with the best preserved segment in the northwest corner. Parts of the dorui have a stone retaining wall but this is likely the later work of the temple. The temple is raised above surrounding rice paddies.
