    金ヶ崎城下町土合大沼武家屋敷 [金ヶ崎] Doai-Ōnuma-bukeyashiki (Kanegasaki)

    There are two former samurai houses in Kanegasaki which belonged to families called Ōnuma. This is the Doai-Ōnuma-bukeyashiki. Doai is the name of the neighbourhood prefixed so as to distinguish it from Katahira-Ōnuma-bukeyashiki. Both homes are well preserved and I think this one was my favourite to go inside of. The interior was gloomy and atmospheric, smelling richly of smoke on wood, and furnished minimalistically with time period appropriate ornamentation and furniture. The kitchen area with its dirt floor had piles of chopped wood and old pots and barrels. The owner came out of an adjacent house, small and modern but built in traditional style, and chatted to us about the bukeyashiki.
