Rich 18 century merchant's mansion converted into museum, traditional Japanese wooden architecture. Elegant simplicity. Tatami floors, sliding doors, small inner gardens to admire. Imposing front gate to prove the importance of the owner's family. 15-20 mins will do a spin.

It was wonderful to walk around this old traditional merchants house on the tatami in bare feet that has been wonderfully preserved. A rare piece of history that is well worth exploring. The rooms are simplistically and elegantly furnished overlooking small tranquil courtyard gardens.

A piece of history to not miss in this little city. A traditional house that you can visit, wandering in the rooms (without shoes), walking on the tatami, in the little garden. Sometimes some western furniture is mixed with the Japanese ones.

I feel fortunate we took time to visit the Ohashi House despite the short afternoon we had at Kurashiki. Since the house was spared from the war and fire, it was like experiencing a remnant of history, a grand merchant home in the prosperous Kurashiki...More

As I walked through the Ohashi house, I could only shake my head, lamenting the days when such craftsmanship, sense of art and architecture were so valued. Visiting this place is like walking into the subtle beauty of Japan's past. The detail of the design,...More
