Background

Tashiro-bukeyashiki (samurai house), the home of high-ranking retainer of Akiźuki. Rebuilt and changed structurally after fire, it nonetheless survives from the Late Edo Period. Includes main house, storehouse, gatehouse, dobei walls and garden. City designated cultural property. Whilst the house cannot be entered by the public, the grounds are free and the house is kept open at times so that visitors can see inside, which allows for a view of just about every part of the house when all of the sliding doors are kept open. Other structures include gates, a kura (storehouse), and a hokora ("mini shrine"). The house is surrounded by a garden and sits beneath a wooded hillside.
