Presumably this was one of many noroshidai (fortified signal towers) in the vast network of noroshidai surrounding Takeda territory, but the warrior in charge of the fort is unknown.

Visit Notes

Kōjin’yama-noroshidai is a fortified signal tower site. Even though it is on top of a tall hill surrounded by forest, the site itself has been turned into a vineyard. It’s not clear if the terracing was made for the vineyard or predates it, but there’s not much feeling of fortification ruins here unfortunately.
