Otaru Kihinkan



An estate built by Masakichi Aoyama and his daughter Masae, whose family led one of Shukutsu's three great fisherman's unions. The estate features splendid halls, ceilings, and transoms of rosewood and sandalwood. Also of note is the ”Eight Immortals Hall,” where one can see Ryuu Shimazaki's ink wash painting over 13 sliding screens of the ”Eight Immortals” in Taoist writings.
