Buke Yashiki


Several kilometres up a narrow, winding road near Kyōjō, Buke Yashiki is a restored thatched-roof samurai-house museum commanding spectacular views of the valley. The interior has been beautifully renovated and there is classical Japanese feudal armour on display. Beside the house is a Shintō shrine that is home to a massive cedar tree dating back more than 800 years.
