佐竹屋敷跡 Satake Mansion Ruins

Updated: Jan 22


At the front gate of Daihōji Temple in the Omachi neighborhood, there is a Sekihi, or stele, that reads:


This was originally the home of Hideyoshi Satake, and is said to have been the site of the Satake family ever since.  Once there was the Satake family's shrine, but it was later moved to Tennosha village and was enshrined there. The mountain in the back is called Mt. Satake, and it resembles the shape of a paper fan. There are three ridges in the center of the mountain.  For reference, the Satake family's crest is a fan with the Japanese flag from Yoritomo.


Erected in March of 1932 by the Kamakura Seinendan Young Adult Association.
