Hattori Residence

From Jcastle.info



The Seri-gumi Hattori Residence is one of the better preserved ashigaru homes from the end of the Edo Period. It is private property but is not currently lived in.

When I visited in October 2021, the house was used to displays exhibits of pottery excavated from around Hikone. Judging by all the boxes I could see I don't think it was just for this exhibit but is permanently used to store these artifacts.
