When I looked at the former Uchiyama residence from its back side, which was the residence of the chief retainer of Ono Domain in the Edo Period, Ono Castle appeared in the background. Although the present Ono Castle is a new building, there are no electric wires that spoil the view in the landscape, so I imagine that the castle must have seen like this in the past too.
When I looked inside the house, the delicate designs here and there caught my eye, contrary to the rugged impression I received from the word "samurai residence". And somehow, I felt nostalgic.
Modern-looking works on the transom windows
A cute ornament on the horizontal piece of timber
The arches of the beams in the corridor are also cool.
