About this sight

Located at the back of Kikko Park and in front of the Iwakuni Castle Ropeway, this historic family home was built in the Edo Period. The two-storey building was both a status symbol for a samurai family, the Mekatas, and a pragmatic feature against flooding from the Nishiki River. It was designated as an important cultural property in 1974.
