Buke Yashiki Samurai Residence (武家屋敷)

3.5

Historical Monument

This samurai residence was the dwelling of many successive samurai, of both mid and high-ranks, of the Matsue Domain from the early Edo period through to the end. The construction of the main house is such that the front and the back are made of completely different material and style. This reflects the public face and the private world of the samurai life. Even the garden is frugally adorned with an austere and manly sensibility. Although current structure is a replica of the original, which was burned in 1733, it preserves the architecture of that period, and is a cultural property of Matsue City.

In the charming traditional streets in front of the castle you will find this great samourai house. Very interesting to understand the daily life samourai.

Ive seen my fair share of samurai houses and these did not disappoint. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the history of samurai

I always enjoy visiting Buke yashiki. This place was well preserved. Very few visitors. If you are non-Japanese citizen, admission is half off.

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
