This Villa allows you to see traditional Japanese architecture from the 20th century. Each room has an audio recording explaining certain aspects; unfortunately, it's not in English. BUT, they have a very detailed brochure. They have weird rules about taking pictures. The house opens to picturesque views of Ozu.

I think it is the highlight of... More

This is a beautiful small garden and house with a tea house that overlooks the river. They have some slightly bizarre rules about what you can and cannot take photos of, but definitely worth a trip. Inside the house they have a 4-seasons room with some beautiful carved wood windows, and the garden is small but lovely. The tea house... More
