Ohnuma Residence

Kanegasaki ohnuma1.jpg


This Ohnuma residence is where the doctor for the Ohmachi lived. While not technically a samurai, the house and property reflect that of a high ranking vassal. The house is rare in that it was built facing the road rather than perpendicular to the road as was typical. The house dates to the mid 1800's or the end of the Edo Period. It has been modernized and is still lived in so it is not open to the public.
