Rosanjin's Iroha Thatched Hut魯山人寓居跡 いろは草庵
The site where the great artist Rosanjin stayed for a half year starting in the fall of 1915. Iroha is located in the Yamashiro Onsen hot spring resort area in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The structure was originally a detached villa which belong to the long-standing Yoshinoya ryokan inn; the main building was erected in the early Meiji period. The site is open to the general public, and the workroom decorated with plaques inscribed with calligraphy, study, and living room with sunken hearth are preserved in the same sate as when Rosanjin was in residence. The site’s warehouse has been converted into a display space which is continuously used to present special exhibitions.

Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
