Background

Although small, this dwelling is quite ornate for its size, with a large genkan (entrance parlour). It belonged to the karō (chief retainer) of Ashimori Domain, a heriditary position held by the Sugihara family who were related to the ruling Kinoshita Clan. It is known locally simply as ‘samurai-yashiki’. It is remarkably preserved, and is surrounded by persimmon trees. In addition to the main residence there is a nagayamon (rowhouse-gate) and kura (storehouses). The nagayamon hosts a cosy tea room.
