Yoshinogari's History

YAGURAMON (Look-out Platform and Gate)

This was the first line of defense for the southern section of MINAMINAIKAKU (Southern Inner Enclosure). It consisted of a large wooden gate, located between the two southern openings, with sentries posted at the top to observe those seeking entrance, as well as the inner moat and a raised dirt wall.
