Samurai Houses

Top choice historic site in Shimabara

In the Teppō-machi area, northwest of the castle, are buke yashiki (samurai residences) set along a pretty, 450m-long gravel road with a stream down the middle. Most of the houses are inhabited, but several are open to the public.

Teppō-machi is about a 10-minute walk from Shimabara Castle.
