Kami Tokikunike Old Residence (時国家(本家 上時国家))

4.0

Historical Monument

The Heike Family who were defeated by Genji in the Battle of Danno-ura—The descendants of the younger brother in law of Taira no Kiyomori, Tokitada who was exiled to Noto, became wealthy farmers serving as imperial village officials; the “Tokikuni-ke” is the currently existing wooden house built by the 21st-generation family head. It seems to be the residence of a village official as the building is structured so that the section used for personal use is partitioned from the section used for official business; articles such as official business articles and large junk supplies are on display in the room used for personal use. In addition, Kamakura style strolling pond garden is designed in a strong style which skillfully adopts the natural topography, and it has been designated as a Place of Scenic Beauty of Japan.

You have a chance to see how Japanese (affluent) were living before the Meiji revolution and undestand why many things are still so different in spite of deep western-ization of Japan.

平清盛の妻時子の弟時忠の子時国を祖とし、大納言の座敷など民家建築の最高峰だと認識しました。50数年前重文指定の下時国家も見学しましたがこちらは台風被害の修復で休館、今回はその後重文指定になった上時国家のみを見学しました。鎌倉形式の回遊庭園は自然のままで当方には心地よく感じられました。また架かっていました柱時計は、1880年-90年代の米国、コネティカット州ブリストルのE.INGRAHAM...

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
