Nakagayahori Yashiki

Visit Notes

I believe I identified the remains of earthen embankments surrounding an old residence which may be the inheritor of the Nakagaya-yakata. The big book of medieval fortification sites lists the two sites of Nakagaya-yakata (Nakagayashihori-yashiki) and the Tada-ashiki (Tadashihori-yashiki) separately, but the two are often conflated. The village of Nakagaya seems to be centred around the Tada-yashiki, which was also used into the Edo period and of which some clear ruins remain.
