Origin of place name

There are various theories about the origin of the place name of "Yaita".For example, there is a theory that "Yaeda", which means Mita, has changed, or "Yakita", which burns fields, has changed, but there is no tradition about Mita, and it is grilled. As for the slash-and-burn field, it was done everywhere in this region, so there is almost no element that makes it a special place name.In addition, it is thought that the place name was "Yaita," which means an earth retaining board, but the reason for this is completely unknown, and it is difficult to guess it, which is also lacking in grounds.Yaita City's large-sized Yaita, which became the city name of Yaita City, is also the birthplace of Yaita, but there is a possibility that the land was called Yaita because the place name was not the first and the clan named Mr. Yaita ruled. , This is also speculative.
