Fodor's Review

Direct descendents of the Ishiguro family open part of their residence to let people in to observe the oldest samurai house in Kakunodate. They lead tours around the house explaining the ornamented doors and the vestibule. The family's 12th-generation successor, Naonobu, explains them with English handouts. In the rear, the armory and historical documents, such as a German text on anatomy, are exhibited. The beautiful cherry tree in the garden is nearly three centuries old.
