The Kōji-yakata was the yashiki (residence) of the Kōji (or Koshi) Clan. The Kōji were vassals of the Ôtari Clan who had their fortified manor hall nearby. This shows a close relationship between the two clans.

Visit Notes

It was already dark by the time I got to the former site of the Kōji-yakata. Luckily, the site's most prominent feature, an embankment beyond which the fortified manor hall sat, is right by the road. Since I was passing by here regardless I figured I may as well look.
