Katohno Residence

From Jcastle.info



The Katôno-bukeyashiki, a samurai residence in the castle town of Tanba-Sasayama, is now a cafe which specialises in continental teas. We luncheoned here. The owners did not know who the original owners were. I was able to carry out some original research, however, and determine that the samurai family which lived here was called Katôno.
