Lots of interesting historical tidbits. The house is definitely getting old and crumbly, but you see hints of how austere it was in the past. My favorite part was viewing the outside landscaping around the pond while chilling out on the upper levels. Very relaxing.

Dropped by for lunch in this famous old house. It was a western-style manor house with Japanese garden. 500 yen admission fee per person was needed even as restaurant clients. Might as well tour around while waiting for food to be served. Restaurant food was...More

Checked out this western-style villa built by the Tachibana clan. It's an old, decaying house with some furniture still intact. It's probably very interesting to the Japanese but not so much to Westerners who have probably already toured big old houses of some long-deceased local...More
