Iwama Residence

From Jcastle.info



This house was reformed from a nagaya style house in 1858. Various samurai lived in this house over the years, but the name Iwama comes from the people who acquired it in 1948. The house was moved to the Maizuru Park and renovated in 1995.

Thank you for the information about the Iwama family; I didn't know that; I'll correct my notes.
