Nutari no Ki

Nutari no Ki

Nutari no Ki (渟足柵) was a type of Saku (fortified frontier) erected in 647AD in the old Province of Echigo, close to the city of Niigata. It’s construction was carried out to serve as an outpost for the military to continue campaigns against the Ezo People of northern Honshu.

It is thought it fell into disuse around 708AD alongside Iwafune no Ki. As yet no trace has been found of this site.1
