TatenouchiYakata (3).JPG


Although no ruins remain of Tatenōchi-yakata, a fortified manor hall of the Nishina Clan, there is a signboard at the site explaining its history.

館 is read both as "tate" and "yakata"; it is usually read "yakata" when a suffix for medieval sites (but more often read as "kan" in modern contexts). "Tate" appears in names such as Otate (御館), the common name of the Uesugi-yakata. 舘 is an alternative form of 館. Both readings and character variants appear in the name of this site.

Visit Notes

Of all of the Nishina residence sites Tatenōchi may be the oldest, as it is thought that this was the initial main residence of the clan before they relocated to Tenshōji-yakata, also called “Nishina Castle”.
