free entrance. You can see the residence of a senior samurai of the Sanada clan, who was worth 230 koku. The main building, storehouse, etc. are mainly buildings from the end of the Edo period. Well maintained.

I came here for the Matsushiro Doll's Festival (held until April 3rd). Although it is close to the entrance of Sanada House, there is no dedicated parking lot, so please use the free parking lot in front of Takarakan-mae or Chikufu-do. Although it is not a very large house, it is well maintained and provides a glimpse of the life of the samurai at the time. Admission is free.

Located to the southeast of Matsushiro Castle, this area, close to the main gate of the castle, Otemon (Otemon) and Shingoten (Sanada Residence), was a samurai residence town where many senior samurai lived. The Higuchi family was in a central position among these, and served as the watchman for the clan, which had a stipend of 230 koku. The Higuchi family residence during the Edo period was a type of public building, just like the residences of other feudal retainers. The main house, storehouse, tenement house, shrine of the mansion god, front gate, earthen wall, and board fence have been landscaped and restored. Three buildings, the main house, storehouse, and nagaya, have been designated as Nagano City's cultural assets (buildings). A spring waterway runs from east to west in the center of the site, and the thicket, bamboo grove, and garden to the south of the pond were used as fields during the Edo period. The buildings, gardens, water fountains, etc., give a good impression of the residences of senior samurai of the Matsushiro clan. Opening hours: 9:00-17:00; 9:00-16:30 from November to March; free; Closed: Year-end and New Year holidays (December 29th to January 3rd)

[Old Higuchi Family Residence, the home of a senior samurai from the Sanada clan. You can take a quick look around] ・Admission is free. ~Summary information (as of September 2022)~ Admission fee: Free Opening hours: (April-October) 09:00-17:00 / (November-March) 09:00-16:30 *Last entry is 30 minutes before closing. Closed: Year-end and New Year holidays (December 29th to January 3rd) Viewing time (personal experience): 10-15 minutes ・The "Former Higuchi Family Residence" is one of the many tourist spots in the "Matsushiro District" of Nagano City, Nagano Prefecture. ・The Higuchi family served as a watchman for samurai of the Sanada clan during the Edo period, and was a family of senior samurai at the end of the Edo period. ・There are three buildings: the main house, storehouse, and nagaya, which are currently designated as cultural assets of Nagano City. A spring waterway flows through the middle of the site, and there are also copses, bamboo groves, and gardens. ・It was a sightseeing spot that you could see around fairly quickly. ・The inside of the building felt closer to modern times than other residential historic sites. What can I say, it feels like living in my grandparents' house. ・It's also close to Sanada House, so why not stop by there as well? thank you very much. #Historical sites #Tourist spots #Matsushiro-cho, Nagano City, Nagano Prefecture #Former Higuchi family residence #Private residence #History #Get around in a short time #HistoricSite #SightseeingSpot #MatsushiroChoNaganoCityNaganoPrefecture #FormerHiguchiFamilyResidence #PrivateResidence #History #ShortTimeTour
