Beautiful amazing museum/samurai’s house with beautiful collection of samurai armours, and a sword holding experience and a samurai helmet wearing experience. I love this museum and it’s one of the best I’ve been in the world. It’s really beautiful as well! I highly recommend it.

Fascinating history and beautiful displays and grounds. History was not coherently developed as there were many layers of history. Anyone would appreciate more of what they’re seeing with a bit of study in advance.

In fall foliage time, you not only can take pictures on the colourful maple trees along the two streets where the heritage Samurai houses located, you can also take pictures in the evening when the houses got their trees illuminated. We came after a heavy rain. All tourists were gone except some serious amateur photographers. The wet streets offered interesting reflections on the tree colours and the vehicle lights. A surprise!
