Gojoban Yashiki御城番屋敷

Historical Monument

Gojoban Yashiki is a samurai residence in which the 20 Kishu top-ranking samurai who guarded Matsusaka Castle at the end of the Edo period lived along with their families. An unusual kumiyashiki (residence for low class samurai enrolled in one of the police forces) even across all of Japan, it still remains inhabited by the samurai descendants, and only one part of the residence on the north side of the west building is open to the public. It is located approximately 15 minutes on foot from JR Matsusaka Station.

Review of Gojoban Yashiki

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/02/15 Old street with some historical house
A short street with some historical house. Worth to stop by if u stay in the city and you love Japanese stuff. Also, no good for parking
Reviewed:2016/11/10 Theres no shop
Gojohban-yashiki is historic district, so you can see unspoiled town.
Believe it or not, all the houses around there are lived-in aside from one.

You can enter the one and look in the room.

The link between the past. Immerse yourself with the memories of the Samurai era! Every detail is worth it. Come and experience it yourself

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
