Sakurashi Bukeyashiki


Sakurashi Bukeyashiki

Some of the samurai houses dating back to the Edo Period (1600/1603-1868) still remain in the castle town Sakura (Chiba), a place where you can get a glimpse of the daily lives of the samurai.

Numerous old samurai houses still remain in the Sakura City and three of the five samurai residences still standing along the street called Bukeyashiki-dori are currently open to the public. They are the former Kawara House, a Chiba Prefecture-designated Cultural Asset, the Tajima House, and the Takei House, a Sakura City-designated Cultural Asset. All three of them were constructed in the latter Edo period and inhabited by samurai of the Sakura domain. The Kawara House, the oldest of samurai houses in Sakura, exhibits furnishings that well represent the lifestyle of the samurai clansmen back in the day. The Tajima House has been at this place since the Edo period, and it is allowed to go inside for a viewing. Inside the Takei House are the excavated artifacts related to samurai houses on display. The street facing the samurai houses are lined with earthwork and hedges, in which the vestige of the castle town Sakura can be seen. These samurai houses are also used as the locations for shooting TV dramas and films. It is a 15-minute walk from the JR's Sakura Station or a 15-minute walk from the Keisei Sakura Station.
