Yoshokan

Historical Monument
This archetypical samurai residence was built in 1869 by Ito Sukeyori, lord of Obi Domain. The residence was named after a large, several-hundred-year-old camphor tree on the grounds. A yakuimon gate stands at the entrance, and the large grounds are occupied by a main residence, sukiya-zukuri-style teahouse, zosha servants' quarters and storehouse, and kura storehouse. The residence is said to have been one of the most prominent of the samurai residences around Obi Castle. The rock garden sprawling on the south side of the residence was created in the samurai, bugaku-ryu style. The famous garden is one of the best in the entire Kyushu region both in terms of its size and superb state of preservation.
