Lonely Planet review

Kyū-Takatori-tei is a fabulously restored late Meiji Period villa of a local trader, built in a mix of Japanese and Western styles, with lantern-filled gardens, a Buddhist altar room, a wealth of paintings on cedar boards and an indoor Noh stage. An English audioguide rents for ¥300.
