Visit Notes

The site of Takusagawa-yashiki is now fields and abandoned farmsteads. There site is partially surrounded by dorui (earthen ramparts), and the corner segment in the north is particularly tall, though the presence of many weeds and trees makes it difficult to get a good view of. Since the property is now abandoned I stepped just a smidgen into the driveway to look behind the dorui. It was clearer to see here than from the road. Much of the property is anyway too overgrown to look around so I then just tried to photograph the dorui from the road. There is another embankment on the opposite side of the road but I don't know if it is related.
