Imanishi family residence今西家

Historical Monument

In the Edo period, the Imanishi family ruled the area as town heads and was even granted the right to self-government. This former residence, designated an Important Cultural Property, belonged to the family. The white mortar walls and traditionally tiled roof of this magnificent, fortress-style structure create a striking impression. The spacious interior is comprised of a dirt floor room and various other furnished rooms.

Nara Main Areas


With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of “traditional Japan.” The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
