Visiting at the samurai residences is recommended in the season of cherry in blossom,

but its good atmosphere lasts through a year.

There are two samurai residences.

One is called Uchimachi area, a 10-minute walk away southwest to Kakunodate Station,

the other is called Tamachi close to the station.

Between the two,Uchimachi area has more remaining original facilities.

Big residences such as Ishiguro Family, Aoyagi Family, Nishimiya Family, and Iwahashi Family

are preserved well, which helps tourists know a residence of a typical intermediate samurai

at the end of the Edo period.
