It’s pretty neat with some nice rooms, artefacts, and mannequins. It’s worth visiting alongside the Hearn Museum/Castle and House but I don’t think it’s worth making time for on its own outside them, unless you haven’t experienced anything like it before.

Lovely traditional samurai home and decent explanations in English.

Beautiful Japanese architecture and interesting history. Easy walk from the castle. English signs and pamphlet. Entrance takes credit card but gift shop is yen only.

Nice little samurai house to explore. You can wander the gardens and go inside the rooms. There isn’t much furniture, but you can still get a feel for how the samurai lived long ago. Like many sites in Matsue, the entry fee is discounted for foreigners as of December 2019. Make sure to go up the hill in the garden to find a small building housing festival drums. You can press a button to listen to the history of the festival and hear a recording of the drums.

Quite interesting to know how is samurai house in Edo period. The site has prepare point for photo shooting. People can pretend living there to shoot. 😉
