See Yashiro Castle for more information.
The former site of Yashirojō, otherwise known as Yashirofurujō ("Yashiro Old Castle") was located here, but now the site is a big factory. Yashiro is an industrial town, I gather from seeing many factories. It is part of Chikuma Municipality (千曲市), and is its largest settlement. Formerly it was part of a smaller municipality called Kōshoku (更埴市), which was a forerunner of the larger municipalities of the 21st century, being named for the two districts it spanned, Sarashina (更級郡) and Hanishina (埴科郡), with the Chikuma River dividing them. The Yashiro Clan were based on the Hanishina side.
