The residence of the Nomura family for 10 generations, the house gives a good introduction to the lifestyle and traditions of well-positioned and influential families during the Edo period, with a number of artifacts and areas preserved as they were, including a tea-ceremony room once used for greeting esteemed guests. The sliding panel doors, a roof made entirely from Japanese cypresses, and traditional garden of bonsais, bayberries, and a gentle stream, each add to the evocative air and educational value of the home.

  • Very cool area to visit. There are some nearby Samurai houses you can enter for free.
  • Why here? It has the 3rd best Japanese Garten, and you can freely take pictures in this beautiful house.
  • Spectacular. Do not miss this one and make sure you have fresh green tea upstairs
