Visit Notes

Tataifurujō, or “Tatai Old Castle”, is located next to a shrine and was built atop of a kofun (ancient burial mound). It’s not so high up and the kofun made building the small fort much easier. In the middle of the main bailey is a large depression where I suppose a burial chamber was unearthed. The kofun’s sides were carved into sub-baileys to ring the fort. To the rear side of the fort is a karabori (dry moat).
