History

Kaibara Jinya was resided by ten generations of the Oda Clan, the feudal lord of Kaibara area. The residence was built by Oda Nobuyasu, the 6th generation lord in 1714. It was burnt down in 1818, but reconstructed by Oda Nobuyori in 1820. The house was built in Shoin-zukuri style (the style of warrior residences). The entrance with Kara-hafu (an undulating Japanese cypress bargeboard)-styled roof and the large shoin (a reception room), which is connected to the main wing in the flying goose formation, are preserved as they were in those days. The Nagaya-mon (long house gate) called Shotoku-mon is a precious structure, for it has remained since its first construction in 1714. Kaibara Jinya was designated as a National Historic Site in 1971.

Visit Notes

This is a great site and town. It is the cleanest place I have seen so far in Japan. This little town is a mixture of Edo and Meiji. There are several building built in Meiji. I really recommend this site!
