The site's history is largely unknown but it is thought to have been the fortified manor hall of a local clan.
Ômura is a peri-urban area of Matsumoto town. Archealogical digs carried out in 1993 showed that the area has been consistently settled and cultivated for millenia. The Ômura-yakata, a medieval fortified manor hall, was located at the site of and to the immediate south of Ômiyadaijin, a shrine in the village of Ômura. I found embankments which surrounded the shrine precincts like dorui (earthen ramparts).
