Takaharajō is said to have been a fort belonging to the Washizu Clan.

Visit Notes

Castle blogs report that no ruins remain of Takaharajō. The hill has terraces and the peak rises a little above the nursing home which now occupies the site, but I could identify no definite fortification remains. The fort was located at the terminus of a jutting plateau (Hoshiyama) and would've been ideal for a fort.
