Lit. belt compound. A long narrow castle compound. Obiguruwa were often constructed on the top of an earthen embankment to form the outer edge of a moat. In medieval mountain castles *yamajiro ŽRé, the term was applied to compounds built atop the outer earthen embankments of dry moats, used in the Gohoujou and Takeda schools (Gohoujouryuu Œã–kð—¬ and Takedaryuu •“c—¬) of military castle construction. Obiguruwa also referred to long narrow compounds on the mountainside below the main compound located on the mountain ridge. In early modern flatland castles *hirajiro •½é, obiguruwa formed narrow connecting corridors flanking the moat.
