Kakunodate Aoyagi Samurai Manor Museum角館歴史村 青柳家

Historical Monument

The old mansion and prestigious Yakuimon (roofed gate) of the Aoyagi Family, vassals of Lord Ashina and Lord Satake. The architecture of the main building has remained unchanged for about 200 years and is designated as an Important Cultural Property. There are valuable armor and helmets, relating the history of the Aoyagi family, displayed in the armory. The Kaitaishinsho Gallery has displays about the history of the Aoyagi Family, the faithful Odano Naotake and “Kaitaishinsho” (a book of anatomy). There is an experience corner, shop, and a coffee shop for you to enjoy your journey back in time. In spring there is a new species of cherry tree that is said to be the only one of its type in Japan, called the Aoyagi eight-petaled red weeping cherry.

          Akita Main Areas


          Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
