Hirokane Residence (広兼邸)

4.0

Historical Monument

"A 55-minute drive from the Kayo Interchange on the Okayama Expressway. This building was the residence of the Hirokane family, whose members served as the village heads of Onoro and amassed a vast fortune around 1800. The residence' stone walls were built at the end of the Edo period, their majesty a match for the romon-zukuri style residence. The residence was made famous nationwide when it was twice used as a shooting location for filming different versions of ""Village of Eight Gravestone"" in 1977 and 1996. Here visitors can experience the residence' luxurious, movie-like atmosphere and learn about the history of the estate and the Hirokane family, who prospered thanks to the Koizumi Copper Mine and the production of melanterite (a component used to make ferric oxide pigment)."

Review of Hirokane Residence

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/05/22 Well preserved traditional Japanese House
Hirokane Residence is situated on the top of the hill and it looks like a small castle.And this residence has been used for Japanese mystery movie also.It is quite beautiful and well preserved but...
Reviewed:2020/01/12 面白い建物。
お城とお屋敷の中間地点くらいの建物で、あまりこういったタイプの建物はいまの日本にないのでは…と思うので、それだけでも訪れる価値はあると思います。駐車スペースから広兼邸へのあいだにも、ひとつお土産屋さんがありました。
Reviewed:2019/07/16 とてつもない城のような豪邸
映画八墓村のロケ地にもなったそうです。
田舎の山の中にあるとてつもない豪邸です。
石垣は見ものですよ。
時間がある方はぜひお金を払って内部を見学してください。

          Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
