Underrated place. It shows you how the lower-ranked samurai families lived in the past. You get 2 leaflets with an explanation, you can see 2 houses.

Great historical atmosphere, well-kept in a peaceful neighborhood. Although small, worth taking some time and soaking up the ambiance.

Completely free and quick to get through. There were two houses we could go in and both required us to take off our shoes. Wonderfully kept grounds and I highly recommend stopping by.

Small museum of two old houses that have been well preserved. This is a good way to view how samurai in the lower ranks lived. Admission is free and the visit is really short (max ~15 minutes) so there's no reason not to go if you're near !

This small museum has two old foot soldier houses that have been preserved. It's a great way to see how the lower ranked samurai lived in the past. The admission is free, so there isn't any excuse not to stop by if you are in the area.
