Inaba Family Merchant House – Gosho Inaba Honke

ABOUT
THIS
SPOT

This was the main house of the wealthy merchant family Inaba, located in Kumihama. The Inaba family came to enormous wealth through a shipping business and coastal trade, which was started using the money earned from manufacturing malted rice in Kumihama during the Edo Period.  The main building was built 130 years ago, and is a nationally registered tangible cultural property.

Now you can visit a reproduction of the mansion. At the restaurant “Ginshou-Tei,” which has existed for 215 years, you can enjoy bara-zushi (sprinkled sushi) and a freshly-made staple, “bota-mochi” (rice cake with sweet bean taste).

You can also purchase local Kumihama souvenirs at the shop.

There is no entrance fee.
