Saikumafuru-yashiki is thought to have been the residence of Hikida Yukinobu in the 15th century. The shrine on site today, Shirahige-jinja, retains a waniguchi (a type of gong), donated by Yukinobu in 1501. The Hikida were a Mikawa-based clan with territory in Shitara and Atsumi counties. The exact relation of the Hikida in Nukata County with those other branches is unknown, but the clan is believed to have controlled Hadanashi valley in the late Muromachi period. After Hikida Yukinobu, there was a Hikida Kanbē recorded as castellan of Tonbyūjō to the north. The yashiki was likely abandoned in the 16th century.
