Although it appears to be very much intact, the Nomura Clan Samurai House are officially called “ruins” as the house and grounds were altered by the subsequent owner. It’s still a beautiful house with a compact but stunning garden of tiered pools so one can guess that he didn’t ruin it too badly.

The Nomura Clan were one of the most powerful samurai families in the Kaga fuedal domain during the Edo Period.

On the second floor of the house, there are two tea rooms in which you can be served match green tea for ¥300.
