The legendary home of the Samurais' can be found in Matsusaka Mie Prefecture!

Yes! Experience the feel of the Edo Period, during Samurai Era here. The home of the guardsmen of Matsusaka Castle also known as the Kisyu Clansmen. The place is preserved until now and the first house is being opened for public viewing! The Samurai families and descendants maintains the place. You can have a short walk here when you have the chance to go see Matsusaka Castle ruins just beside it!

Very accessible by bus, from Matsusaka City Hall, just a three minutes walk! The views are superb during spring, recommend to visit during those times!
