History

Tonomura-yakata was the medieval fortified residence of the Tonomura Clan. Is this the same site as the Nishimura Residence where Tokugawa Ieyasu stayed in 1588?


Visit Notes

The site is now private residences. I happened to pass by on the way to Tokugen'in and the site of Kashiwabara Castle (Omi) when I noticed it appear when searching for nearby historical sites. I have confirmed the co-ordinates on 'Iseki Walker'.
