Mishima Station 

[Egawa Residence]

The home of Hidetatsu Egawa, a key player in the creation of the Nirayama Reverberatory Furnaces, a world heritage site

This is the residence of the Egawa family whose members served as the magistrate that ruled the local area for nearly 300 years until the Meiji Period. As one of the invaluable existing magistrate residences, the residence has been designated as one of the nation's important cultural properties. Ikibashira, a pillar utilizing a living tree just as it is, and high ceilings built for functionality are the highlights of the home. Because it is also known for being the home of Hidetatsu Egawa, a vassal of the Shogun who played a key role in the construction of the Nirayama Reverberatory Furnaces World Heritage Site, the premises exhibits a variety of valuable historical documents associated with the furnaces.
