Kutsuki Izuminokami Jin'ya
Kutsukiizuminokami-jin'ya was a daikansho (the administrative centre of sub-fiefdom) of Fukuchiyama Domain (Tanba Province) established by Kutsuki Tsunetsuna ('Izuminokami' being his honourary title) in the 1830s as a replacement for the old jin'ya, Kutsukishuzen-jin'ya, which became part of the territory of the Shingaraki-daikansho (which was a tenryō; tenryō were holdings of the Shogunate). Shingaraki is in Kōka County. The establishment of this jin'ya was as a result of a change in boundary lines, or territory swop, of territorial holdings then. The boundary changes took place in 1825 and Kutsukiizuminokami-jin'ya was used until the Meiji period.
The site of Kutsukiizuminokami-jin'ya retains some ishigaki (stone-piled retaining walls) and is now the site of a cemetery and a shrine to Inari. I photographed the stone walls but didn't enter the cemetery because it was being worked on.
