About this sight

The area of Shitano-cho in Shimabara is known for its historic samurai residences, called buke-yashiki in Japanese. Here, a water stream runs along the middle of the street, which was a common infrastructural practice and served mainly as a readily available water supply for fighting fires. You will find other streets like these in all of Western Shimabara; however, only the residences in Shitano-cho are open to the public.
