Sasayama Higuchi Residence




The Higuchi-bukeyashiki, a samurai residence located in the Kachimachi neighbourhood of the castle town of Tanba-Sasayama, is now private property and not open to the public. It is set back from the road and its thatched roof is now covered over with sheet metal. It is not easy to get a good luck at the structure or judge its state of preservation. It also has ceramic tiling for mokoshi.
