What a beautiful and formal example of an early 20th century Japanese industrialist's home with Western influence. The courtyard gardens are so peaceful, secluded and atmospheric. The rooms are designed to capitalise on the courtyard views. The kitchen must have been high tech in its day and the copper channel for washing long hair is evocative of the period. The... More

This house was built in the early 20th century for a Japanese industrialist and is lovingly preserved by the National Trust. Knowledgeable docents provide a detailed tour explaining various aspects of the construction of the house and the lifestyle of the family.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
