Because the Iwami Ginzan (silver mines) were of great economic import, the Shogunate maintained direct control over them via the daikansho (Seat of Magistratus) in Ômori Town. Bukeyashiki (samurai residences) were also built in the town and the Kawashima-bukeyashiki, built in 1825, is an example of a higher-ranking bushi residence, is the only one of them open to the public. The Kawashima patriarchs worked as officials at the Ômori-daikansho - basically an office job.
