Background

Terashima-bukeyashiki, popularly called Kurandotei after Terashima Kurando, retainer of the Maeda Clan and renowned artist of the Edo Period, is a bukeyashiki (samurai house) dating to the late 1700s. It consists of a main house, a storehouse, walls and a garden with lush moss. The Terashima Family were bushi (of the warrior caste) with a lineage of over five centuries. In the Edo Period they served the lords of Kaga Domain in the castle town of Kanazawa. This original samurai house and garden is often overlooked by travellers as the Nomura-bukeyashiki located in the Nagamachi neighbourhood is better known and attracts the lion's share of visitors. The sign outside the house says that the garden features a waterless pond, but in the heavy rains it was brimming with rain water!
