An additional ticket must be purchased when entering from the K. Gardens. It was worth it for us. The villa was built for the Maeda lord’s mother and must have been the height of esthetics at its time in the 19th Century. The reception room...More

Easy to follow route around 10 sizeable rooms. The cobalt blue upstairs was stunning. Best of all were the numerous collections of dolls and miniatures which the family had looked after for centuries. (Hope they weren’t just on display for the Hina Matsuri when we...More

For the admission fee of ¥700 we found it to be somewhat boring with very limited English explanations about the history of the house and artifacts. No audio guide. Samurai house or Shima house were more interesting to visit.

Virtually nothing inside this house to see - waste of time and money. Paper screens, Tatami mats, a few kimonos......yawn.

As with Japanese culture and tradition, this is a pretty and minimalist treasure. Worth a visit to quietly meditate and clear the mind.

A lovely old villa, very well preserved and worth visiting if in the area. The were some areas you couldn't take photos though.

It is sort of hidden toward the back of the Kenrokuen Garden. You can see beautiful interior of an old Japanese house as well as a collection of traditional Japanese dolls and house goods owned by the wives of a rich Bushi family.

The interiors of this Villa are beautiful, although it is very sparsely furnished, so I was quite happy that I visited. The entrance fee does seem a little expensive, I would assume the cost of upkeep must be very high.

Fascinating place with such unusual features. This is my second visit and the exhibitions change regularly. Currently set up for children's day with a huge collection of dolls and tiny antique furniture for dolls.
