As I was driving, I saw a sign for the ``Important Cultural Property Sasagawa House'' and stopped by. By chance, the guide was available and explained everything in detail. Although the Sasagawa family was a large shoya, they only received royalties and did not own very large fields. It was interesting to learn that even though it was the same Daishoya, it was different from the Ichijima family in Shibata City.

■I visited the Sasakawa Residence, which is an important cultural property. I was surprised to see that in addition to Echigo's large shoya and mansions, there were also many rice storehouses. We also toured the Soga Hirasawa Memorial Museum, which is located on the premises of our destination. Professor Oki Hirasawa is a person I respect. He is a pioneer in neuroanatomy in the world. ■Professor Oki Hirasawa is the 16th president of Kyoto University. He was a person full of humanity, and always spoke of the importance of early childhood, saying, ``Children have infinite potential.'' In addition, in his own research, he said, ``If you understand one thing, there are 10 things you don't understand.In the end, I found out what I didn't understand!'' I love this word. ■When you come to the Sasagawa residence, please also take a look at the Soga Hirasawa Memorial Museum. The building is also worth seeing.

2022.11 After watching ``Japanese Hikari'', I thought of Hiru no Tate as well, and visited again around the time of autumn leaves🍁. It was a weekday afternoon and the place was reserved. I was able to see the storehouses and the garden behind them, which I couldn't see during the illumination, and it gave me a renewed sense of a large shoya residence. 2022.10 I visited to see the ``Japanese Hikari'' (light-up and projection mapping). There will also be koto performances and works by Ally Junior High School students. I like light-up, but projection mapping... In any case, I think it would be a good thing if events like this are held and help cover the maintenance costs of cultural properties. postscript The demand will probably be low, but how about an event where only the moonlight is the light of old life?

Daishoya-sama is really spacious. You will be overwhelmed by the size. It is amazing that the building from that time has been preserved in this condition. If you want to watch it thoroughly, it's best to watch it for 1.5-2 hours. There are a lot of mosquitoes, so insect repellent is a must. You should bring muhi too! The toilets at the Sasagawa residence are old, so we recommend using the one in the memorial hall in the second half.

It was owned by the Sasagawa family during the Edo period, but is currently owned and managed by Niigata City as an important cultural property. It is open to the public from 9:00 to 17:00, admission fee is 500 yen for adults, closed on Mondays, and is used for cosplay photo sessions and other events.
