Former Residence of Honda Tadatsugu旧本多忠次邸

Historical Monument

The house and part of the water fountain built by Honda Tadatsugu, the second son of the viscount family, in 1932 has been relocated and restored to Kake Town, Okazaki City, Aichi Prefecture. Tadatsugu is a descendant of the former Okazaki daimyo (feudal lord) Honda clan who descended from the samurai general, Honda Tadakatsu, who was once said to be one of the Tokugawa-shitenno (four generals serving Tokugawa Ieyasu). He was also at the cutting edge of academia at the time. The house is a wooden Western-style building based on the Spanish style that was fashionable at the time. Inside are both modern Western-style rooms and purely Japanese-style rooms. There’s plenty to see such as furniture, stained glass and mosaic tiles, etc. Exhibitions are occasionally held throughout the year.

東公園に突然現れる洋館です。
なんでこんなところに突然?と思うのですがなるほど、移築されたものなのですね。
岡崎市ゆかりの本多家の邸宅とのことですが忠次自身は岡崎に深いゆかりがあるわけではないようですね。
訪れた当日はガラスの器の展覧会を催していました。
素敵な場所なのでもっといろんな催しが開催されるといいのにな。

          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
