Unique experience. 4 storey house! Wonderfully preserved. Free flow green tea - do try!! Don’t forget to look out the windows when you’re in the higher floors.

Entry to Kanda house requires a charge of Yen 300 but you will be served with the local tea after touring around different floors inside the house. It is an experience to realize how the local villagers use their dwellings effectively.

This house shows the living quarters on the ground floor and the (3 or 4?) upper floors are laid out as a workshop and storerooms. Amazing use made of the space. A fascinating insight.

Cost you 300 yens to visit. Suggest you not to visit when tours were there. You had to fight for space, waiting time to climb the narrow stairs, for a glimpse out the window of the top floor, or even to take a picture. Be...More
