The oldest samurai residence in Matsushiro
- 15 min
The home of one of the Sanada clan’s long-time vassals.
The main building was built in 1759, and it is the oldest building among the samurai residences remaining in Matsushiro.
Its notable features include the thatched roof from the time it was built and the alcove seen in traditional Japanese houses.
The alcove had two purposes: one, it symbolized that the room was for guests, and two, it indicated the family’s social status.
