Former Samurai Residence


See how the samurais of Matsue lived


This former samurai residence was for middle-class samurais of the Matsue clan during the Edo period. Katana drawers, a teethblackening dye set, household furniture and livingware are also on display. Compared to the grand structure and interior of the public area (entrance, drawing room and master’s living room), the private area for family was quite simple and modest. One can have a glimpse of the samurai’s way of living; drawing a sharp line between their public and private life.
