OhmoriDaikanshoMiyakeBukeyashiki (2).JPG


This is one of the bukeyashiki (samurai homes) located in Ômori Town, site of the famous Iwami silver mines. The Miyake family patriarchs worked at the Ômori-daikansho. They were bureaucrats. Although this home is a prefecturally designated historical site and the much better preserved (or restored?) Muneoka-bukeyashiki is only a municipally designated historical site, to me the Miyake-bukeyashiki looks to be the most modified over time of all of the bukeyashiki I saw in the town. It's just a regular home today! The structure dates to sometime after 1800 as an older home on the site burnt down in a fire which damaged the town.
