Lafcadio Hearn’s Former Residence


Home and garden of Lafcadio Hearn, author of Kwaidan


Lafcadio Hearn, who internationally introduced Japan in the Meiji period, lived in this simple but beautiful samurai residence with his wife, Setsu, for 6 months from June 1891. The house and gardens have been preserved as they were during his time here. The beautiful Japanese garden surrounding the residence was particularly Hearn’s favourite.
