Machita Yakata


MachitaYakata (1).JPG


The Machita-yakata, situated between the Sai River and an imposing mountain range, has a marker commemorating Masuzawa Nagajirō, a Bakamatsu / Meiji Period potter and sculptor whom the site was later associated with. But the site's earlier history is obscure.

Visit Notes

This was the sixth stop on my "Yakata Tour". No ruins remain and there is little information available. The site is now fields and homes.
