Beautiful old house with lovely gardens! You can't actually go into the garden but viewing it from the different rooms is still relaxing. There are rotating exhibitions in the storehouses and local crafts sold in the gift shop. Free parking!
What I heard was that the Ishitani family was the richest family around town who built this residence and flourished the whole Chizu region as one of the largest Shubuka. The place itself is pretty impressive, considering how long it has been around and how proper it has been kempt. As you walk inside, you can hear the floorboards creaking. You will also realise the interior is colder than the exterior, which was puzzling. If you enjoy museum visits, you'd probably enjoy this.
