Samurai District, Semboku
Categories: Historic Walking Areas, Neighborhoods, Tourist Spots
Head back into an important and iconic part of Japanese history during a walk through Samurai District, an area of town that once housed 80 samurai warriors and their families. The well-preserved buildings sit on wide, tree-lined streets, giving the district a peaceful atmosphere. With some dating back to the 17th century, the buildings here stand as remarkably well-maintained archetypes of contemporary architecture. Six of the houses remain open to the public, and each gives an impression of the lifestyle, fashion, and traditions of their inhabitants, while also now containing museums, gift shops, and restaurants.

Passing a Board fence next to the warehouse there is a wider road is carried directly on the second floor of the rice, etc.? Will be considered. In addition, this size either because of snow of winter movement faxed at least. I think that far in advance than as historical traces don't detail what occurs in other areas during the Edo period, but was left in my local area.show original
