Matsusakatei松阪邸

Historical Monument

The former residence of a wealthy merchant who operated a variety of prosperous businesses, including salt making and sake brewing. Matsusakatei is located in Takehara City, Hiroshima’s Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings, an area where the city’s old townscape is kept preserved. The estate was built at the end of the Edo period and was entirely remodeled in 1879. The structure is notable for its unique architectural design, including wave-like roof and lattice windows. Inside, the building is decorated in the elegant sukiya tea ceremony arbor style, which creates a subdued and soothing atmosphere.

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
