Anjou Jin'ya




Anjō-jin'ya was hatamoto jin'ya established in 1698 by Hisanaga Nobutoyo to govern a fiefdom valued at 4,354 koku. The jin'ya was in place all the way up until 1871 and the abolition of feudalism in Japan.

Visit Notes

Anjō-jin'ya is a hatamoto (bannerman) jin'ya site in urban Anjō. The site is now mostly housing, but there is a small field on a short bluff with altars and an explanatory board about the site; it is a locally designated historic site. I visit here as part of a tour of the Anshō trinity sites, the others being Ansho Castle (medieval), and Anshouko Castle (classical to medieval era) (jin'ya = proto-modern era). No ruins remain.
