Wakabayashi-yashiki was the medieval fortified residence of the Wakabayashi Clan. The Wakabayashi were vassals of the Katagiri Clan. Constructed at an unknown time, the yashiki was used up until 1516.

Visit Notes

Wakabayashi-yashiki is a fortified residence site close to Ishida Castle. It is thought to predate the castle, however. Today it is a rural homestead, but dorui (earthen ramparts) and a narrow karabori (dry moat) remain on the western side. At the edge of the dorui is a hōkyōintō (宝篋印塔) stone pagoda.
