AburakawaNobueYashiki (5).JPG


Aburakawa-Nobue-yashiki was the fortified residence of Aburakawa Nobue, a member of the Takeda Clan. Aburakawa fought in the civil wars of the Takeda Clan, fighting with Takeda Nobutora who was his nephew; he was slain at the Battle of Kai-Katsuyama Castle in 1508. His mansion was likely abandoned at this time.

Visit Notes

The site of Aburakawa-Nobue-yashiki is now that of a small temple called Ryūsenji in the Isawa area of Fuefuki Municipality. The remains of dorui (earthen ramparts) can be seen forming an angular segment adjacent to the temple's cemetery. Furthermore a waterway in the north appears to be the successor of a moat. The ruins have been damaged by flooding of the Fuefuki River in the past and submerged so it's miraculous that any earthworks survive, but luckily the area is otherwise very quiet and rural.
