Tonomura Yakata




Tonomura-yakata was the medieval fortified residence of the Tonomura Clan.

Visit Notes

Nothing to see. The site is now private residences. We were passing by on the way to Tokugen'in and the site of Oumi Kashiwabara Castle when we noticed it appear searching for nearby historical sites. I have confirmed the co-ordinates on "Iseki Walker".

Is this the same site as the Nishimura Residence where Tokugawa Ieyasu stayed in 1588? Investigating : 3
