A Kurashiki townhouse with unique architectural features. Designated as a nationally important cultural asset

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 who served the Toyotomi clan, moved from Osaka after the fall of Osaka Castle to present day Nakashima Kurashiki City in 1705. He later went on to make 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 at the time. Upon entry into the building, one can easily slip back in time to the height of the bygone era's glory.
