Takeda Family Residence

The Takeda Family Residence is a large scale farmer's house with a frontage and depth of 18 meters.
The house is said to have been built using leftover materials from the reconstruction of the main hall of Shokoji Temple towards the end of the 18th century.
It was home to the Takeda family, who served as village officials for multiple generations. And within its magnificent truss lies a wide selection of rooms used by the family, their guests, and their servants, making this piece of traditional housing an incredibly valuable window into the abodes and lifestyle habits of peasant rulers during the era.
