Sanshu Izutsu House|讃州井筒屋敷

Sanshu Izutsu House|讃州井筒屋敷
This is the renovated house of a businessman who previously ran successful soy sauce and Japanese sake brewing operations. Now it is a multipurpose facility that is centered around a tourism information center. In the garden there are stone basins for washing hands (Chozubachi) and stone lanterns (Ishitoro). The house is left as it was built – there is a tea room with sliding doors (Yukimishoji – ‘viewing the snow’ doors) through which the garden can be viewed, and a lovely tatami room. Inside the facilities you will find a popular fish restaurant, a shop that sells antique kimono and obi (kimono sash), and an insect shop that has hard-to-find Japanese rhinoceros beetles. A unique line-up!
