Historic Site · Tourist Spot
Step back into the past as you visit Nomura Family Samurai House, a traditional Japanese home. The residence of the Nomura family for 10 generations, the house gives a good introduction to the lifestyle and traditions of well-positioned and influential families during the Edo period, with a number of artifacts and areas preserved as they were, including a tea-ceremony room once used for greeting esteemed guests. The sliding panel doors, a roof made entirely from Japanese cypresses, and traditional garden of bonsais, bayberries, and a gentle stream, each add to the evocative air and educational value of the home.
