Ōuchi-shi Yakata (大内氏館 Ōuchi-shi Yakata?) was the fortified residence of the Ōuchi clan in Yamaguchi, Japan. Ōuchi-shi Yakata has been designated as being of national significance.[1][2] It was a base of the Ōuchi clan who were feudal lords and thrived during the Muromachi period to Sengoku period.[1]

In 1556, Ōuchi Yoshinaga built Kōnomine Castle as a supporting castle of Ōuchi-shi Yakata because Ōuchi-shi Yakata was considered unsuitable for withstanding a siege.[3][4] but Mōri Motonari`s army advanced to Suō Province, Ōuchi Yoshinaga left Ōuchi-shi Yakata and Kōnomine Castle without resistance.[5]

The castle was listed as one of the Continued Top 100 Japanese Castles in 2017.[6][7]
