A merchant house of the Edo period with beautiful lattice doors

The main building of the Shida family home in Old Tokaido Kambara-juku, where they handled rice and salt and, from the end of the Edo period, brewed soy sauce. The building was damaged in the Ansei Earthquake of 1854 but was immediately reconstructed the next year, and has remained in that condition up to the present. Now the building serves as a resource center and is a precious place where visitors can learn about life in a post town in the Edo period and see items used by the Shida family such as tools for manufacturing soy sauce and old agricultural implements.
