Former Residence of Lord Hotta旧堀田邸

Historical Monument

"The Old Hotta Manor, built in 1890 is the site of the home of Hotta Masatomo, the last lord of the Sakura domain. Standing in the center of an expanse of lawn, it has a splendid modern Japanese-style garden that takes advantage of the ""borrowed scenery"" of the plateau on the opposite shore. This garden is affectionately referred as ""Sakura Garden."" In 2006, the five main buildings, the storehouse, and the guardhouse were declared National Important Cultural Properties, and in 2015, the entire grounds including the garden were designated a National Scenic Beautyas ""Ex Hotta Masatomo Garden""."

三館共通入館券の三館のうち、一番楽しめました。住居部分、門番所、土蔵は国の重要文化財に指定。ボランティアガイドがいなくても、百年名家のビデオとスタッフの方のお話で十分楽しめました。

          The Boso Peninsula forms the main body of Chiba prefecture, and this is where you’ll find its endless warm water beaches and jagged mountains. Further inland, Naritaーmost famous as the home of Narita Airportーis a secret haven of tradition and history in the form of centuries-old Shinshoji Temple and quaint wooden Edo buildings. Chiba prefecture is also home to both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
