Soeda Residence


Kanegasaki soeda1.jpg


The Soeda also served as senior advisors to the Ohmachi clan. The house and wood paneled storehouse you see on the left above are original and date to the late 1800s. The house has obviously undergone some modernization in the intervening years. The gentleman who came out from this house (I assume was the owner) stopped me to chat about the town and local history, providing some of the insights scattered through these pages about Kanegasaki that you may not see elsewhere.
