Travel Guide - Buke-Yashiki (Samurai Residence)

InformationInformation

The Buke-Yashiki residence served as a home to a middle-ranking Samurai and his family 270 years ago. Today, a selection of furniture and household items from the Edo period (1603 – 1868) are displayed in the well-preserved house. There is a good English description leaflet of the various rooms and their uses in this large residence. This was not the home of a wealthy family, but the stark contrast between the elegant entrance and guest room, and the minimalist simplicity of the private quarters highlight the distinction between the public and private lives of Samurai.
