Very friendly staff and lovely house. The exhibits throughout the house were tastefully arranged.

Surprisingly I liked here than any other museums or Shrine. It’s a real traditional Japanese house and you can even get inside. Tatami floor, wooden floor corridor, glass door and backyard- all real. I personally enjoyed the squawking sound whenever I stepped on the wooden floor corridor and feeling ‘being in the house’. Moreover it’s not crowded.

This old traditional house which was built in the early 20th century is awesome. We didn’t expect that much before we decided to go in and have a look. Judging by a glimpse of outside this old Japanese house is way far from anything luxurious despite of the fact the owner of the house was a landlord in the local. However once you stepped in the house you would be amazed of the true beauty of Japanese traditional house style. The rooms with a tatami floor and those austere but elegant flower-shaped chandelier are fascinating. There aren’t many furnitures in the room. But somehow the emptiness of the room makes you calm and peaceful and the garden looking through the window is beautiful enough to get your attention. I would love to come and visit this place in the fall. It would be truly great to enjoy the beauty of the garden in autumn while I’m sipping a cup of green tea on the wooden floor.

Very cool to have gone into a samarai master house. It was pretty big for back in the day. Garden is small but nice.
