Ishitani Residence: a compilation of modern Japanese-style wooden construction
Chizu-shuku was a post town during Edo period.
Ishitani Residence, facing the Inaba kaido (Inaba road) is a wooden mansion with 40 rooms sprawling on a 10,000 square-meter property.
The large-scale of this structure can be appreciated when you look up from the entrance hall and see a combination of enormous beams and pillars made of various trees.
Ishitani Residence is a historic construction that shows the transition of building techniques from the end of Edo period to Meiji period. Today, this highly regarded Japanese-style mansion is open to public.
The storehouses have been converted to a gallery to accommodate arts and crafts exhibitions.
Here, you can enjoy scenery through four seasons.
