What a wonderful little find. 3 Samurai houses for different ranks - high, middle and lower, with a wonderful guide to show all the little details. We were all fascinated with the stories and the architecture. Getting up close to the thatched roof, the earthen floor in the kitchen, the pleasant gardens were all a wonderful experience. Thank you to... More

Well worth it, very great view of history and well laid out tour that took a little less than a half hour.... More

This was my 3rd visit to these houses along the one street. I like that they are the actual locations of these houses and the enbankments are still there. I was told that this & other entrance features had to do with horses. The fee is nominal (about 200-en for adults), youth are free on Saturdays, and these types of... More
