‹ŒŽΒŒ΄‰ΖZ‘ξ (Kyu shinoharake jutaku)

This is the former residence of one of the old and respectable families of Utsunomiya,the Shinoharas whose history dating way back into the EdoEra, whore you can enjoy the atmosphere of good old days of the Meiji Era. The main house and the storehouse made of stone, built in 1895, will give you some idea about the life of wealthy merchants at that time. The outer walls made with black mortar and Oya stone(locally produced tuff),the lattice work decorating the storefront which characterized merchant houses in those days are worth seeing.
