Explore the early 20th-century house of Bansuiso. Built by Earl Sadakoto Hisamatsu in a 19th-century French Gothic style, the house was once known for its high society parties, but now serves as a sightseeing destination and venue for various public events. After exploring the ornately decorated rooms, consider paying a little extra to venture to the first floor, where balconies afford fantastic photo opportunities of the grounds, gatehouse, and surrounding area. Be sure to check the listings to see what kind of events are running during your visit.

Very outstanding architect in the middle of the forest. This white French style castle is hard to miss even though it’s not a castle.

However when we got there some exhibition was going on the first floor with a theme of gothic. It was pretty interesting to have a look. I guess there’s occasionally this type of free exhibition hosted here.
