Nagabayashi Fort


NagabayashiToride (2).JPG


Nagabayashi-toride was a branch fortification of Hisawajō used essentially as a look-out of that castle due to its higher vantage point.

Visit Notes

The Nagabayashi-toride (fort) ruin is located adjacent to Hisawajō. It consists of two parts. Firstly a small enclosure with a trench on the upperside and two tiers of terracing below. Further up the ridge is more terracing and two flattened areas perforated by a cutting made into the ridge. The toride is a sort of extra stuck on the end of Hisawa Castle. I checked it out because I was anyway coming down the mountain from the road beyond.
