Old Samurai Residences (ブケヤシキ)

  • 22878views

On the west side of Shimabara Castle, the samurai residences have been carefully preserved, complete with clear spring water flowing in canals down the center of the streets.

While being used for everyday life, the water also served to help with firefighting and disaster prevention.

The three preserved samurai residences in the Shita-no-Cho area are usually free for public viewing. Visit the Yamamoto, Shinodzuka, and Torita Residences and take a glimpse into the daily life of these samurai families.
