Takeda-Hyōgosuke-yashiki, as the name suggests, was the fortified residence of Takeda Hyōgosuke, also called Takeda Nobuzane, a military leader of the early 16th century. Takeda Nobutora’s fifth son, Takeda Nobuzane was a younger brother of Takeda Shingen.

Visit Notes

The site of the Takeda-Hyōgosuke-yashiki is now the site of Matsuo-jinja, a shrine in the Koyashiki (‘Small Residence’) area of Enzan Township, Kōshū Municipality. To the rear of the shrine is a long row of dorui (earthen ramparts), remnants of a fortified residence. This wall probably extended further to the east, but there a school now stands.
