#1 of 13 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.

    I think Western to see alternative like is the easy-to-understand voice guidance advantage here. Flowing description of the room are individually marked with visible serial number button, press it and the philosophy of not only buildings, but at the time had their is interesting. Earphones-just the volunteer guides and other guidance are listening to different visitors depending on the timing, not it's can understand a story. I think aiming at the chance have time take a look at the stream of people stopped listening to this wonderful guidance and understanding deepens. Then many people will have volunteers guide sent from might want to hear the story behind the story, such as. It was unfortunately Cafe was renovated.
