Ohashi House is a classic merchant's house in Kurashiki that is designated as a nationally important cultural asset.
The house was headed by a samurai that served the Toyotomi clan, who moved from Osaka after the fall of Osaka Castle, via present day Nakashima of Kurashiki City to this location in 1705, and later made a fortune through rice and salt farm development as well as the finance industry.
The building retains architectural features representative of Kurashiki's wealthy merchants, including Nagaya-mon gate, Namako wall, Kurashiki windows, and Kurashiki lattice inside the Nagaya style rowhome that were not publicly permitted. Upon entry into the building, one can easily slip back in time to the height of the bygone era's glory.
