The Odano served under the Imamiya and moved with them and the Satake to Kakunodate. The Odano were well known for their martial prowess and also had a training hall on the grounds, which no longer exists. The original house was burned down in a fire in 1900, but the rebuilt house is still representative of samurai home architecture in the latter Edo Period. The residence is also well known for its traditional garden.
