Gojoban Yashiki

Matsusaka Castle, constructed in 1588, is now a park in which the stone walls remain. Adjacent to the caste are nineteen houses in which the families of the castle guards resided. Encircled by fences and stone pavement, the residences radiate an elegant, historic air. Some of the original families still live in these houses today, but one house is open to the public.
Gojoban Yashiki (Gojoban’s home) is also known as “Castle Guards man House” it is a row of houses (called Kumiyashiki) where “Kyu Kishu Hanshi” warriors in the olden times who were in-charge of guarding the Matsusaka castle lived during the later part of Edo period.
