Travel Guide - Tanemaki Gonbei-no-Sato


The facility features Gonbei-san, an ex-Samurai farmer who actually lived here in the Edo Period (1603 - 1868).
His struggle against farming is told in a famous folk song "When Gonbei plants his seeds, crows will begin picking one out of every three...".
There is a well maintained Japanese garden and a museum called "Gonbei's residence" where the items associated with him as well as local folk materials are exhibited.
