TsurugaokajouHyuugaBukeyashiki (1).JPG


The Hyūga-bukeyashiki is a surviving samurai residence which has been relocated from the castle town of Tsuruoka in the north. The Hyūga-bukeyashiki was constructed in 1862 in the Torii neighbourhood of the town, and the patriarch is listed as Hyūga Shōnosuke, a samurai of the Shōnai Domain. The building now has copper tiling for its roof but it originally would've used straw thatching. The house is open to the public, 10:00-16:00, and I believe admission is free, though it was after four when I arrived so I couldn't check out the interior. Even though this bukeyashiki was originally in the town surrounding Tsurugaoka Castle, it is now located opposite the ruins of Maruoka Castle (Dewa) in the village of Maruoka in Tsuruoka Municipality.
