Travel Guide - Aoyagi Samurai Manor Museum (Kakunodate Rekishi-mura Aoyagi-ke)

InformationInformation

Aoyagi Samurai Manor Museum is a well preserved Samurai house of Aoyagi family. Yakui-mon Gate, the main gate to the manor built in 1860, is designated as an important cultural property. A 280-year-old weeping cherry tree in the garden is the only, new variety of weeping cherry tree in Japan which blooms in late April.
Today, the manor is open to the public and used as a conglomeration of mini-museums. One focuses on Akita's folk art, another exhibits weapons and armor, and a "Haikara (newfangled)" museum displays all the things that seemed so modern in the Meiji Period (1868 - 1912), such as antique clocks and phonographs.
