The Tamade Moat
It is said that, at the time of the battle of Ishiyama, there was a fortress in Kotsuma Village (part of present-day Tamade) and the moat was dug around it for protection against enemies. Furthermore, new stonewalls were apparently erected as recently as the Edo period, with east and west gates. These days, the moat measures approximately 1.8 m across at its widest point, with a granite bridge for crossing the water. The remains of the moat surround Tamade Middle School and Tamade-nishi Park and is said to have remained in existence until about 1934, after which most of it was destroyed by wastewater and other construction work.
