The Nagase residence has been passed down within the Nagase family for 250 years. The first three generations to occupy the house were doctors and the house now exhibits medical equipment from the Edo Period.


A five-story gassho style house, the eleven meter rafter beams (gassho beams) extend from the peak to the eaves in a single span, creating the structure’s distinctive large roof.
