Hojo Tokiwa Residence Site

Hojo Tokiwa Residence Site is an archaeological site which contains remains of the samurai residences of the Hojo Clan regent Masamura. It seems that the defence function was raised by placing the samurai residence in vicinity of Daibutsu Pass. The building ruins on base stones and many samurai artefacts were found through the archaeological excavations. These are valuable remains of the samurai from the Kamakura Period.
