Excavations in the early nineties revealed the remains of a yakata (fortified manor hall) here. Although the name may lead one to believe it is related to the Suda Clan site to the north (Sano-yakata), Sanominami-yakata is thought to date to the Kamakura period, before neighbouring Suda Clan sites were built in the Muromachi period.
No ruins remain of Sanominami-yakata, at least not above ground, and the site is now rice paddies and pleasant fields adjacent to the Ishibaji River.
