Maruyama Tonomura Yakata

Tonomura-yakata was the original site of the Maruyama Clan’s fortified manor hall before they relocated to the high ground of Mandaira-yakata (Maruyama Mandaira Yakata) in the middle 16th century.

Visit Notes

Of Tonomura-yakata, a common name for fortified manor hall sites since it means literally ‘Lord Village Hall’, in Ikusaka Municipality, the former residence of the Maruyama Clan, nothing remains. The site is now fields (I found a kiwi orchard), a school and a nursey. But there is at least a little signboard explaining about the site.
