    Aomori Pref. Hirosakishi Kamenokoumachi 88
    This residence is estimated to have been built in the middle of the Edo period, and is also designated as a National Important Cultural Property. For generations the household took the name “Seibei” and dealt in straw and household goods for the clan. Currently it is operating as a liquor store, and with the living room’s open hearth is an interesting building.

    This seems to be the older Samurai house and sits about a quarter miles from the other three. Very nicely preserved with the feel of a warriors house.
