Which nishingoten in Esashi to visit?

I wish to visit just ONE of the preserved houses. Which one should I visit? The Yokoyama House or the Nakamura House?

Thank you!

Not sure why you only have time for one house? Are you on a tour?

Both a peaceful places, I kind of liked the Nakamura House more...the contrast between the f ront rtooms and the lower working rooms for the fish business were interesting. But both are attractive.

Thank you for your input, Amanda. We happen to be passing by Esashi, so I thought we'd do a quick drop in and visit one of the houses. I'm also guessing that perhaps they are similar?

It's also like my Rebun & Rishiri choice. I decided not to do both islands in one day, but to just go to Rishiri and enjoy it for a full day, and skip Rebun altogether.
