Nomura Samurai Family Residence

 

 

 

The remains of the Nomura family are also open to public. The family successively held executive posts from generation to generation under rule of the Maeda family.

The house has a coffered ceiling totally made of Japanese cypress and fusuma-e (paintings on sliding-door panels) created by the Maeda family's personal painter. The garden inside the residence has a Japanese bayberry over 400 years old and a meandering stream surrounded by ancient and strangely shaped rocks.
