Sanada Yazawashi Castle




Visit Notes

Yazawashijō is a branch castle of Yazawajō, as the name implies. The site is now fallow fields surrounded by forest. The profile of the terrain can be seen if one descends from Yazawajō, but there isn't much else to see and I regret climbing up. A shallow valley with a resevoir separates the two sites.
