Irimajiri Residence


IgaUenojouIrimajiriBukeyashiki (1).JPG


This samurai residence dating to the late 18th century once belonged to the Irimajiri family. It is part of the Iga-Ueno Castle-Town. It features the Omoya (main residence), kura (storehouse), garden, and nagayamon (rowhouse-gate). There is a tea room with circular window. Parts of the roof, which is kayabuki (thatched), were leaking when I visited and a bucket had been put out to collect rain water. These pictures are mine so I'm sharing them but you can find nicer ones online. Along with the Akai Residence, the Irimajiri Residence is one of two bukeyashiki (samurai homes) in Iga-Ueno.
