Bansenso (former Matsui family residence)

A villa with a rich international flavor built by a trader
"Bansenso (former Matsui family residence)"

Bansenso is a villa built on a hill in 1926 by Kunigoro Matsui, who amassed great wealth through trade. The three-story wooden building is made of hemlock and ebony, and is a combination of Sukiya-zukuri and traditional Shoin-zukuri. The hallway is made of 20 single planks of Southeast Asian South Sea wood, a balcony that was rare at the time, and a roof tile with the initials "K.M" designed on it, giving it a sense of international playfulness. You can enjoy natural scenery such as Garyu-buchi and Kameyama from the window.
