Mizusawa-yashiki was the fortified residence of the Mizusawa Clan, vassals of the Kinebuchi Clan who were based to the southwest. See Kinebuchi Yakata for more info'.

Visit Notes

Mizusawa-yashiki is a fortified residence site in the Kinebuchi area of Shinonoi Township, Nagano Municipality. Access to the site is limited as it is now private property and used as farmland, but it is believed that the sunken fields in an angular configuration around a corner of raised earth represent where the residence stood with its surrounding moats. I also found a small side path which went to an old local well.
