The Grave of Hitoyanosuke Watanabe

The Grave of Hitoyanosuke Watanabe[Watanabe Hitoya no Sukenohaka]
Watanabe Hitoyanosuke served Mr. Takeda and set up a base in Motosu on the border between Koshun and Ryogoku, and served as a guard for the border Motosu.
"Watanabe Hitoyanosuke's Tomb" is located about 1 km south of Shiroyama in Motosu, a little higher on the eastern shore of Lake Motosu, and is surrounded by the ruins of Watanabe Prisoner's mansion and the traditional masonry. There are still sections left.
Several five-wheeled towers are enshrined in a section divided by masonry, and it is said to be the tomb of Watanabe Prisoner. Judging from the form of the Gorinto, it is estimated that it was built from the end of the Middle Ages to the middle of the early modern period.
The stone wall-shaped part made of lava stone continues to the north and east sides of the graveyard, and it is thought that the area that seems to be the site of the house is large, but how is that part related to the site of Mr. Watanabe's mansion? If so, it is difficult to clearly grasp the boundary of how far the range extends. It is thought that it will not be clarified without waiting for academic research such as archaeological excavation.
