This attraction is worthy simply for its architectural heritage, a townhouse building from the late Edo period. Built in 1887, the building has two components - the main structure and mud-walled storehouse. On top of the building is a feature visitors find somewhat curious - a large water jar. It's a basically a fire-extinguisher! Inside, the rooms and halls are preserved as they would have been in the olden days. The house used to belong to a textile merchant.
