Sasayama Satou Residence

The Satō-bukeyashiki, a former samurai residence in the Kachimachi Bukeyashiki area of the castle town of Sasayama, is open for free, and the guide is Mr Satō himself. Many of his family's heirlooms are on display in the cosy abode. He let me play with a halberd. He also had a historic map of all of the bukeyashiki homes in the town which I found to be useful since many samurai homes remain in the neighbourhoods around the castle which aren't open to the public.
