Suda-yakata was the fortified manor hall of the Suda Clan, particularly of the Ôiwa-Suda, in the Sengoku period. For more information see Suda Castle and Oh'iwa Castle.

Visit Notes

Suda-yakata, a fortified manor hall site in the Hitaki neighbourhood of Suzaka Municipality, is now the site of the temple Renshōji. There are explanation panels at the temple about the site’s history relating to the Suda Clan and Ôiwajō above. I thought I might be able to access Ôiwajō from here but there doesn’t appear to be anyway up from the temple, which makes sense because it is ensconced by mountain fronds. The temple itself has old architecture and is handsome. Nearby there are lots of sign posts pointing out various historic spots and natural monuments in the village. I also came by the site of stores for Suzaka Domain just south of the temple.
