Main Street in Kakunodate Samurai District

The main street in Kakunodate Samurai District was designed in 1620, and amazingly the width of the street has remained the same since.   Behind the black walls, there remains six Samurai residences, including the Ishiguro Samurai Residence and Aoyagi Samurai Residence which are open to public (for fee).  Among those six residences, one of my favorite places is the garden (admission free) at Kawarada Samurai Residence  which is connected through the garden to Odano Samurai Residence.  

These two photos were taken on September 23, 2017:  Main Street in Kakunodate Samurai District and the garden at Kawarada Samurai Residence.

“ Akiko went the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed our trip ”

1 year ago Traveler: Caroline -   Tour Guide: Akiko

Akiko spent a lot of time organising and researching so that we had a perfect day. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed the special effort made by Akiko. Our agenda went smoothly and we had the best opportunity to spend time at the Samurai houses with the families before it became busy. I would recommend Akiko to anyone looking for a tour as you will be very well looked after.
