Lonely Planet review
The Kikuya family were merchants rather than samurai. As official merchants to the daimyō their wealth and connections allowed them to build a house well above their station. This house dates from 1604 and has a fine gate and attractive gardens, as well as numerous construction details and materials that would normally have been forbidden to the merchant class.
