Sakurai-Nobutada-yashiki was the fortified residence of Sakurai Nobutada, a vassal of Takeda Shingen and later Takeda Katsuyori. The Sakurai Clan was founded by Sakurai Nobusada, a son of Takeda Nobunawa. The grave of Takeda Nobunawa is located in the cemetery of Shōyōin. After the fall of the Takeda Clan Sakurai Nobutada, who was granted the honourific title of 'Akinomori ("Governor of Aki (Province)")', served his new master, the conqueror of Kai, Tokugawa Ieyasu.

Visit Notes

Sakurai-Nobutada-yashiki was a residence site which is now the site of vineyards, temples and cemeteries. No ruins remain. Sakurai is a neighbourhood sitting between Isawa-onsen and downtown Kōfu on a cultivated hillside. The slope beneath Tōzenji is terraced and even has some stone-piled walls, but these do not seem to date to the time of the residence.
