Fujimaki-yashiki was a fortified residence of the Fujimaki Clan who built Mamyōda-toride on a bluff to the immediate south. Its castellan, Lord Fujimaki, had the honourific title 'Defender of Iyo (Province)'. It is recorded that the Fujimaki had relocated to this site following the flooding of their original base. The yashiki may have been built alongside the fort around 1582, but this is not known for sure. It is possible the Fujimaki Clan were wiped out during the siege of Mamyōda Fort.
For more information see Mamyouda Fort.
No ruins remain of Fujimaki-yashiki, a medieval residence site, but it is associated with the site of Mamyōda Fort to the south. There are some embankments along the roadside up from the fort site which I photographed. It seems in spring they are covered in 'sakura grass'.
