Oya Residence

From Jcastle.info



This is a valuable Edo Period samurai residence. The house and garden are quite large and some of the original walls around the residence provide the important castle town atmosphere for the Kanazawa samurai quarter. Supposedly the inside of the house mostly retains the original structure as well. It would be great if this were open to the public some day.
