“Excellent historical museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

The largest inn that in it's day held samurai and high-ranking officials in Tsumago. The house itself is stunning and the English-speaking guide gave us a very detailed insight into the history of the building. Behind the original structure is a series of old treasury buildings converted into a historical museum about the Kiso valley, the importance of the forests to the local economy. Very interesting indeed. Highly recommend spending an hour or two wandering through the exhibits.

“Interesting history, English speaking guides appreciated”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

We learned a lot about the history of the village as well as its famous visit from the emperor Meiji, for whom special facilities were built. Lovely gardens also.

Worth some time to look at the structure and the details. Interesting in showing the style of the early Meiji era.
