Nakasuji Family Former Residence was the “ojoya”(gonernmental head of a group of municipalities), which was in charge of administration in this area in the late Edo period. The main building (Omoya), built in 1852, is one of the largest large private houses in the Kinokawa river basin, and the east side of the site faces the Kumano Kodo.

Admission was free as it was Kansai Culture Day. We were given detailed guidance and enjoyed the view from the 3rd floor. It has been restored and still has some of the original items left. Even now, the land and building are privately owned, so it is a building that we would like to preserve for future generations.

This is the place I visited while walking with my brother! My older brother loves history, but I'm not really into history and personally, I wasn't really interested until I went there, but the lady who explained it to me was very polite and did her best to explain it to me. I was happy and got a little interested in it! I've been to places like this because I like my brother, but I've never been treated so warmly by him! I was genuinely happy that nothing else was wrong! For the 100 yen admission fee, he gave us a detailed explanation, which made my older brother, who loves history, really happy! Thank you! There are so many wonderful places in Wakayama that you may not realize! I want to convey that even a little! I'm glad I went! Even though it doesn't really have a long history, it was fun and I thought it was an amazing place!

This is a historical site along the Kumano Kodo. Admission fee is 100 yen. We also received various stickers and leaflets. The uncle and sister in charge were very kind. In reality, I was probably giving a detailed explanation, but since I was drenched in sweat after crossing the Yata Pass, I wasn't able to do that anymore, but he kindly asked me to take a rest wherever I wanted. The former Nakasuji family is said to have been a large headman, and is a quite impressive mansion. There are three in the garden alone. It's worth your time to visit. Please note that the parking lot is approximately 300 meters away.

Arrived around 11am on September 15, 2019! Parking lot is free, but you have to walk about 300m from the parking lot! However, I think the scenery of the countryside along the way is nice! Am I the only visitor? Tour fee: ¥100 We were guided around with detailed explanations from the staff! I think it's because of the kimono she wears! No matter where you go! Thanks to you, I took a leisurely tour! We also had a special tour of the second and third floors! After the explanation, take a leisurely tour! I stayed there for over an hour and a half! I wanted to take it more slowly! We recommend that you leave plenty of time to visit!

Daishoya's house. Get a glimpse of the old life that has been beautifully restored and recreated. You can only visit the 1st floor, but I also want to see the old toilet, bath, kitchen, and the 3rd floor gazebo which is open to the public twice a year!
