Built in the late Edo Period, the Katō-bukeyashiki (samurai residence) is now an inn ran along with Takyō Abe Inn, another former bukeyashiki nearby. The Katō were samurai officials employed at the daikansho (magisterial offices for direct representatives of the Shogunate), which basically had the task of overseeing the important Iwami silver mines of great economic interest to the Shogunate.
