InformationInformation

The members of the Kawarada family were hereditary vassals to the Ashina clan and Satake clan. The family's manor has maintained its traditional Samurai home construction in the Edo Period (1603 - 1868). The interior of the house can be viewed from a path leading through the garden. The Shoin style of traditional Japanese residential architecture distinctive to this region can be seen in the parlor.
A storehouse in the manor is renovated and used as Kakunodate Samurai House Museum. This small museum houses an interesting assortment of martial equipment, household belongings, and old documents of that time.
