Nomura Samurai Residence

Historical Monument
A collection of buildings which once served as the residence of the Nomura samurai family during the era of Japan’s feudal domains. This popular tourist destination is located in Kanazawa, Ishikawa. Walking the stone paving and earthen walled alleys of the site, you’ll be able to get a taste of the life a samurai and his lady wife lived during the Edo period. The Nomura family served as regional administrators for generations; today, their home is open to the general public, and visitors can view fusuma screen paintings by the Kano school painter Sasaki Senkei, the interiors of buildings with glass and paper screen doors, tea rooms, and the family garden. Visited by great numbers of tourists from overseas as well, the residence is an internationally renowned sightseeing spot.

    Very interesting tour of a Samurai house. Top marks for a well designed home garden with Koi fishes. However, we didnt have a guided tour and am sure there are many interesting things we might miss...

    A few small rooms with Samurai armor on display. You feel the history as you walk thru each room. An amazing garden enhances the experience.
