About a 15-minute walk east from Kumatori Station on the JR Hanwa Line.
This is a venerable old house that was said to have been visited by Emperor Go-Shirakawa during the Heian period, and was preserved and opened to the public during the Edo period.
It was designated as a national important cultural property in 1964.
The main building, which is located at the end of the large front gate, is a gabled house, with thatched roof and wife, and is considered to have been built in the early Edo period.
The dynamic and highly independent Doma is the largest in the Kinki region, reminiscent of the back of a temple or the kitchen of a samurai family.
Currently, only the main building and the front gate and Karamon are left behind, but the old map of the late Edo period depicts the guest hall (shoin) in the annex, the nagayamon, and the annexes such as Gokura, which is a much larger mansion. It turns out that it was, and the appearance of the past can be seen.
I introduced it briefly, but when you actually come to the site, you can experience the history and tradition more concretely with the locals.
We look forward to hearing from you in Japan！
