Virtually nothing inside this house to see - waste of time and money. Paper screens, Tatami mats, a few kimonos......yawn.

As with Japanese culture and tradition, this is a pretty and minimalist treasure. Worth a visit to quietly meditate and clear the mind.

A lovely old villa, very well preserved and worth visiting if in the area. The were some areas you couldn't take photos though.

The villa is inside the garden and accessible by ticket. It is convenient to visit to appreciate the traditional japanese architecture .

It is sort of hidden toward the back of the Kenrokuen Garden. You can see beautiful interior of an old Japanese house as well as a collection of traditional Japanese dolls and house goods owned by the wives of a rich Bushi family.

The interiors of this Villa are beautiful, although it is very sparsely furnished, so I was quite happy that I visited. The entrance fee does seem a little expensive, I would assume the cost of upkeep must be very high.

Fascinating place with such unusual features. This is my second visit and the exhibitions change regularly. Currently set up for children's day with a huge collection of dolls and tiny antique furniture for dolls.

The interiors of this building would have to be it's highlight and are worth a visit (unfortunately photography is prohibited). NOTE: You can access the site from the Kenroku Gardens.

Did not appreciate this villa and again it was just in and out and not a lot to see at all. Sometimes you pay to get in to these places just in case you miss out but in hindsight would not have bothered going in....More

So pleased we paid the money to see this beautiful house and it's gardens and exhibits. A very rare opportunity to get inside a quality building of this period. They had the summer kimonos on display which added extra interest.
