Jinpukaku Mansion (National Important Cultural Property)

Historical Monument
Jinpukaku Mansion is a villa constructed in 1907 by Marquis Nakahiro Ikeda, the grandson of the last lord of the Tottori domain, to provide accommodation for Crown Prince Yoshihito (later the Taisho Emperor) during his tour of the San’in region. It is a two-storey white wooden building with a tiled roof, the design of which was inspired by the French Renaissance style; it has been designated as a National Important Cultural Property. The Jinpukaku Mansion now houses a museum, with displays on the history of the Tottori domain and the Ikeda family. The second floor offers superb views of the Horyu-in Garden, which has been designated as a municipal Place of Scenic Beauty by Tottori City Government.
