The Sanada Family Residence was a palace built in 1863 over the span of a year. It served as a residence for the lord’s mother-in-law.
Later, it became the residence for the lord as well, following his retirement.
There are only a few palaces that were built apart from a castle like this remaining in the country. The main house and the many other buildings and gardens that remain on the premises are part of an important cultural heritage.
