History

Uchida-yashiki appears to be a smaller antecedent of the Takadaô-yashiki, the main base of the Uchida Clan.

For more information see Takadaô-yashiki.


Visit Notes

Uchida-yashiki is a former fortified residence site in Kamihirakawa township, Kikugawa Municipality. The site is now a Kasuga shrine. There is some indication of dorui (earthen ramparts) along the western edge of the premises, but that's all.

This castle-visit was actually effected whilst waiting for a table at Sawayaka, a popular family restaurant found only in Shizuoka Prefecture.
