The historical homes in Hirosaki are beautifully preserved and maintained with lovely traditional Japanese gardens.

I reviewed this area in another post. This is one of the old houses which is free to enter. I found it interesting to see how they lived back then. You wander through a relatively empty house. If this is not your thing, you will not enjoy it. I found the neighbourhood a great place to spend an hour.

Of the four Samurai house this is not one it is that of a doctor. It is more modern than the newer houses of warrior servants that resided in the area.

The house is situated in the samurai residence area near the Hirosaki castle park. I would suggest to combine a visit to this house with a nice stroll along the castle moat and a visit to Tsugaruhan Neputa Mura (Neputa festival museum in Hirosaki I reviewed earlier). The entrance to the samurai house is free and you get a paper with basic English explanations. It’s interesting to see and physically experience how the ordinary samurai house was organized and lived in! So, if you read something on this subject before the visit, it would be even more instructive and beneficial experience.

Seeing old-style residences is very difficult (at least, this was the only town in Japan where we found any), and there are several in this district. Very interesting for history buffs.

These houses are in a residential area and it can be quite confusing when you turn up. You will have to walk down a residential street with a sign pointing you in the right direction and then you will come to the residence with gates open and flags out the front. It is free to enter and there are friendly people at the house to welcome you in and hand out pamphlets about the place. You must take your shoes off to enter as it does have the traditional Japanese floors.

All the residence in the area have the same friendly staff to welcome you but each house features a different design. They all have traditional Japanese gardens.
