Tsukiyama-yakata was built immediately north of Ôuchi-yakata, the main residence of the Ôuchi Clan. Tsukiyama-yakata was used as a guest house by the clan. See my profile on Ôuchi-yakata for more information.
Immediately behind the Ôuchi-yakata is another site called Tsukiyama-yakata. This was also a residence surrounded by dorui. An expansive corner segment to the northwest remains and is taller than the dorui at the Ôuchi-yakata. The site is now that of a shrine.
