Kurayoshi Yodoya (Former Makita Family Residence) (倉吉淀屋(旧牧田家住宅))

4.5

Historical Monument

This townhome was built in 1760. It is said to be the oldest of the extant merchant homes in Kurayoshi. Consisting of a main building and annex, the residence was built in the sukiya-shoin-zukuri-style. The Makita family, to whom the residence belonged, were some of Kurayoshi's most well-known merchants; because of their close connection to the wealthy Yodoya merchant family (who famously built the Yodoya Bridge in Osaka with their own funds), they were also known as the Kurayoshi Yodoya. After renovation work conducted from 2007 to 2008, the main building and annex are both now open to viewing by the general public. The city's Dairenji Temple, to which the Makita family was connected, is the location of several generations of heads of the Yodoya family, each of whom took the name Yodoya Seibe, and many tourists visit both this residence and the temple.
