The Former Kawashima Family (local officials) Residence代官所地役人 旧河島家

Historical Monument

After being recruited in the early Edo period by the Okubo family, the governors of Iwami region who also supervised production at the local silver mine, the Kawashima family served as mine supervisors for several generations. The Kawashima family residence is believed to have been built in the early 1800s. The main building, which appears at first glance to be a single-storey building, actually has a second storey above the earthen-floored part of the ground floor and the storeroom; the Zashiki room where guests were entertained faces onto the garden. As it embodies so many of the features characteristic of the residences of silver mine supervisors, the Residence has been designated a Historic Site by Ohda City government.

Review of Previosuly Kawashima Family's House

Reviewed:2018/11/04 ぜひ、中の見学をお勧めします。
大森の町の散策途中に立ち寄りました。昔の豪商の力を知ることができました。車と整った道路のある現代においても、大森は山の奥に感じます。車できてもかなり山奥と思ってしまうこの地に当時、これだけの町と豪商があったということは、いかに石見銀山が重要で発展していたかということを表していると思います。
逆にいうと、世界遺産センターや建物の中を見学しないと、石見銀山に来ても勿体ないと思います。

甲冑の展示があります。そのほかに、玄関はいってすぐ2階に上がる収納庫があります。そのに整理されている食器等の収納の素晴らしいこと。必見です。

石見銀山みてあるきMAPにも大きく取り上げられています。入場は朝9時からなので、早朝からの散策だと中に入ることはできませんが、外観だけでも楽しめると思います。

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
