Yoritomoyama-toride is a satellite fortification of Minochi-Katsurayamajō, located further down the mountain. A mountain road passes between the two sites. There is a path up to Katsurayamajō, and directly below the road the ruins of Yoritomoyama-toride begin. There are a series of trenches and embankments before one reaches the main enclosure. This main bailey is surrounded by a ring bailey and earthen ramparts. it's a neat little fort ruin and a nice warm-up for the big mission of tackling Katsurayamajō above.
