Sakayori Masamoto Yashiki




Sakayori-Masamoto-yashiki was the fortified residence of Sakayori Masamoto, a vassal of Takeda Katsuyori. The Sakayori Clan was a branch of the Itagaki Clan which was based just to the west. Sakayori Masamoto was killed in the attack on Kōzuke-Zenjō in 1580. His son, Sakayori Masamitsu, then presumably became lord of the yashiki, but he died in 1582 at the Battle of Nagashino.

Visit Notes

No ruins remain of Sakayori-Masamoto-yashiki, a medieval bukeyashiki (samuria residence), and the site is now that of a temple, Jōshōin, and some fields, houses and workshops. The name of the neighbourhood is Sakaori (酒折), which seems to be a corruption of Sakayori.
