    This annex is part of Ichinomiyakan, a traditional Japanese inn. It was built in 1897 and got its current name because the novelist Akutagawa Ryunosuke stayed there during the Taisho period.

Built with traditional minka (private house) architectural techniques, it's a national Registered Tangible Cultural Property.

    Chiba Pref. Sakurashi Kaburagimachi 274
    "The Old Hotta Manor, built in 1890 is the site of the home of Hotta Masatomo, the last lord of the Sakura domain.

    Chiba Pref. Katorishi Sawara A 1732
  • Watanabe Residence
    Travel / Tourism
    Chiba Pref. Isumigunotakimachi Kubo 126
    This residential home was built as a merchant home in 1849. Although the formerly thatched roof was remade into one with cross-piece tiles, all of the structure, interior and furniture is exactly as it was when first constructed.

  • Samurai Residences
    Travel / Tourism
    Chiba Pref. Sakurashi Miyakoujimachi 57
    Sakura was once a castle town, and former samurai houses stand along one of its streets: the former homes of the Kawara family, the Tajima family, and the Takei family. Built late in the Edo period, they offer a glimpse of the everyday lives of the samurai. Visitors are allowed inside the Tajima house, but the Kawara house is open only on special occasions.
  • Nakamuraya Shoten
    Travel / Tourism
    Chiba Pref. Katorishi Sawara B 1720
    To reach Nakamuraya Shouten, visitors should walk for about 15 minutes in the direction of Chukei bridge from Sawara Station on the JR Narita Line. Built near the end of the Edo period in 1855, it is an atmospheric general store that deals in sundries, general merchandise, and tatami mats (and other items made of soft rush grass), and in 1993, it was designated a Prefectural Tangible Cultural Property. The actual building is a must-see, and it still in business as a store. Customers can buy small, charming mini parade floats, Boshu fans, and other highly individual Japanese-style sundries that are found nowhere else.

    Chiba Pref. Matsudoshi Matsudo 714-1
    This museum is just a 10-mintue walk from the Matsudo Station on the Shin Keisei Line or the JR Line. The Tojo-tei House was built as the villa of Tokugawa Akitake, the younger brother of Tokugawa Yoshinobu, the last shogun of the shogunate government, and is designated as a National Cultural Property. Almost all of the residences of the Tokugawa clan from the Meiji period still exist so that one can get a glimpse into the environment in which these former lords lived. On display at the adjoining Tojo Museum of History are primarily the treasures of Tokugawa Akitake, but also displayed are items from the Matsudo Tokugawa family as well as from the Tokugawa Yoshinobu family.
