Presumably this was one of many noroshidai (fortified signal towers) in the vast network of noroshidai surrounding Takeda territory, but the warrior in charge of the fort is unknown.
Kōjin’yama-noroshidai is a fortified signal tower site. Even though it is on top of a tall hill surrounded by forest, the site itself has been turned into a vineyard. It’s not clear if the terracing was made for the vineyard or predates it, but there’s not much feeling of fortification ruins here unfortunately.
