Visit Notes

Ryūgasaki-yakata was the kyokan (residential area) of Ryūgasakijō. There is a wide flattened area which is now a park, Ryūgasaki Park. This is where the lord of Ryūgasaki Castle actually lived when not on campaign or being besieged. The trail up the castle mount begins beyond a trench which cuts into the hillside and is now a path between the kyokan site and a temple, Ikegami Temple. The trench and the flattened portion of the hill are the ruins of the yakata (fortified manor hall). Ryūgasakijō is a solid yamajiro (mountaintop castle) ruin to explore if one is in the area (though I appreciate Ina is a little out of the way!).
