Kita-ke House(Important Cultural Property of Japan)

Once you go through the stately, thatch-roofed front gate of the Kita Residence, you arrive at the main building made of over 2300 stones, serving Tomura of the Kaga Domain. The building still has the merits of a Tomura residence, and thanks to donations received in 2005, it is open to the public, with conservation run by Houdatsu Ishimizu.
