“better than most other Samurai areas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We had visited a few samurai areas and nearly didn't go to Chiran, near Kagoshima in Kyushu. But we had a car for the day and it was a lovely drive from Kagoshima - so glad we did! The gardens of these preserved houses are really lovely and so beautifully maintained. We loved wandering the quiet streets of the rest of this charming little town too.

“Just take some material in advance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

These seven houses/yards are very beautiful. They also carry very meaningful tradition, in many ways missed. The whole area (also other houses) is very calming and enjoyable.
