This home was moved here from it's original location so only the home is original. The surrounding gardens are from the Shibata lord's detached palace. In the 70's five other samurai homes were dismantled and put into storage but unfortunately none of them have been rebuilt yet.
I'm not sure if the inside is regularly open to the public. On this day, the inside was reserved for some tea ceremony event.
