Tried to visit the samurai house kita residence
(武家屋敷), which is up a considerably windy narrow road.
Directions are very well signposted once off the main road.
On arrival was a sign saying it is closed Dec 1, 2017 to Mar 31, 2018 for renovations.
There was one English signpost outside explaining the historical significance of the house, which leads me to think the renovation might incorporate for English information provision.
The equally desolate temple (神社) next door has a very impressive 800 year old cedar tree on its ground, which is worth a look.

Yes, there is a very windy single lane road up to this house - but just take it slow and steady. The house is well maintained and the woman there gave us information in English. Worth the drive up just for the view!

One of the longest 4km drive in Iya valley with hairpin turns and very tight roads. I (passenger) felt car sick immediately. On arrival at the top, whilst the building itself was nice to look at from the outside, there was minimal information in English so we could not learn more about the artefacts inside the building. We were also not able to find the suicide room because of this. It was slightly disappointing. The house is not at its original location. We would recommend coming prepared with the history of this building before coming if you cannot speak/read Japanese. For 310 yen entry unfortunately for us, this was not worth the drive.
