Nariai Yakata


NariaiYakata (1).JPG


Nariai-yakata was probably the main base of the Nariai Clan who had holdings in the area. And it is thought that they operated at least two branch forts - at Kamaenohaka Yakata and Houzouji Yakata nearby. The area was later the site of a shukuba, Nariaishinden-juku, in the Edo period.

Visit Notes

The former site of Narai-yakata was the tenth stop on my "Yakata Tour". The only markers I found here indicated former school sites of the Edo and Meiji periods, and nothing for the yakata. I identified no ruins and the site is now houses and fields.
