The Kawarada clan supported the Ashina since they were in Aizu (Fukushima) and continued to support the Satake through the entire Edo Period after the Ashina died out. The current house was actually built in the Meiji Period but is representative of Edo Period samurai home construction and displays the unique shoin style architecture form this region. The Kawarada clan continued to be successful after the Edo Period working in various business, politics and education.
