[Hotta Family Residence]
A historic building with features of Owari townhouse architecture
The Hotta family is an ancient family whose members served as Shinto priests at Tsushima-jinja Shrine. The family made a fortune in the brewing and banking industries in the Edo period, and served under the Owari Province magistrate of temples and shrines. This residence was the family manor, and was built in the mid-Edo period. It subsequently went through repairs, relocations, and other work to become what it is today. It consists of a main building, a tea room, and three storehouses with earthen walls. You can see the various architectural styles of the periods when the repairs and renovations were done, and get a glimpse of how people lived in the past in parts that are known to have been the living room, servants' quarters, and so on. With features of Owari townhouse architecture evident in its style and layout, the residence has been designated as one of the nation's Important Cultural Properties.
