Very well preserved compound and you are free to roam around or even sit around (although as usual there's always the "usual route" arrows guiding you). There are English explanations around so no worries there.

Such history to see here. The buildings were excellent and the insides were immaculately preserved so you could see life as it was back in feudal times

Unless you have plenty of time or a great interest in Japanese history there does not seem a lot to this building. Whilst on an organised tour we visited many similar buildings and began to lose interest. The surrounding area has much more to offer.

Walking around the morning market, the hawkers are so quiet and polite to customers. The fruits and the grocery stuffs have own culture and the fruits really taste good with low price! It’s a place worth to see!

We happened across this place by accident, and I'm so glad we did. It was fascinating to walk through this edo period building--the only one left of its kind! We learned a lot about the period and were intrigued by the architecture. Just 430 yen...More

Obviously many rooms were void of furniture but this empty well maintained building still gives you an idea of what it would have been like in years gone by. Very neat and gardens with beautiful autumn garden colour
