Takeda Nobuyoshi's younger brother, Nobukiyo, established the Yatsushiro Clan and built Nubaku-yakata as his fortified manor hall in the late Heian period. The kanji for Nubaku is 奴白, which can also be read Yatsushiro. Yatsushiro, from where Yatsushiro Nobukiyo took his name, is the name of the historic county and township where the yakata is located, but the kanji used is 八代. This was a big naruhodo moment for me when I realised this.
Nubaku-yakata is a fortified manor hall site located in the Yatsushiro Township of Fuefuki Municipality, Yamanashi Prefecture. No ruins remain and the site is now a vineyard and winery. There is a marker post with the yakata's name on in one of the orchards.
