Bansuiso, Matsuyama

4.0
#1 of 15 in Museums in Matsuyama
Explore the early 20th-century house of Bansuiso. Built by Earl Sadakoto Hisamatsu in a 19th-century French Gothic style, the house was once known for its high society parties, but now serves as a sightseeing destination and venue for various public events. After exploring the ornately decorated rooms, consider paying a little extra to venture to the first floor, where balconies afford fantastic photo opportunities of the grounds, gatehouse, and surrounding area. Be sure to check the listings to see what kind of events are running during your visit.

  • Somehow time was an amazing place I went to kill the much higher than expected. Most people went during the day in the middle of the week so, explained women's volunteer guides. Room stayed the Emperor, taken dining room, and was used in the supper rooms each could feel the history of those around you talking about your room. It is without having to worry about the time when you next time because it was busy, I thought it was Oita into a gallop, but slowly you want to place.

  • Museum Hill on the same grounds. Very nice building, but look around, so there are no. Grass and trees grow right in front of the building, it is difficult to take photos.

  • Harder to understand is the entrance of exoticism, drop-in is great, but going by car 1 time as passed.

  • It's nicest from the outside, not much to see inside of you can't read Japanese though there was an array of hats on display when I visited.
  • Walk on main road opposite from Okaido tram station. 2mins away only
  • Nice building in a beautiful setting. However, if you don't have time, skip going inside as there isn't much to see
  • Great!!
  • Small fee to enter the grounds and the museum was okay. The best part was a man who was standing at the entrance in an authentic Meiji uniform.
