Matsumoto Residence


Matsumoto residence1.jpg


This lower class samurai residence was located in an area surrounded by ashigaru and other lower class samurai. The thick thatch roof of the house today retains an historic atmosphere of a rustic samurai home. The owners of the home were associated with the Imamiya clan who came to Akita with the Satake. Demonstrations of traditional crafts that weave thinly cut maple wood together can be seen during the open months.
