YoshinohoriYashiki (1).JPG


The Yoshinohori-yashiki was built by Maruyama Tangonokami very close to Yoshinomachi Yakata which was built by Maruyama Niwanokami. The area was controlled by the Maruyama Clan. Although initially supportive, the clan would ultimately oppose the Takeda Clan after they invaded the area, and were forced to relocate to Uesugi-controlled territory in Echigo. With the Ogasawara resurgence after the destruction of the Takeda Clan, the Maruyama returned, however.

Visit Notes

A moat and rampart ruin remains belong the roadside. The site is now a private residence. Google Maps indicates that the road passes the moat and goes by the house but to me it looked like the house's driveway. I looked from behind the site and this was a dirt track road between farmland. I concluded my investigations here as I was concerned about accidentally tresspassing. The current house is built in a traditional vernacular style surrounded by fields so it's quite fitting.
