Important Notice:
The Samurai Residence is closed for renovations from October 2016 through March 2018. It will reopen in April 2018.

Some of Matsue's former samurai mansions have been preserved along the busy road north of Matsue Castle's inner moat.

Among the buildings is the Matsue Buke Yashiki (]Ɖ~), a former samurai residence which is now open to the public. It is a good example of a high ranked samurai family's mansion in Japan's countryside. Also in the area stands the former residence of Lafcadio Hearn.

Access

The samurai district is located just north of Matsue Castle along the moat. It is connected with Matsue's railway stations by the "Lake Line" loop bus.
