Former Yamazaki family villa
It was built in 13 as a retreat for Mr. Kashichi Yamazaki, the fifth generation of Kawagoe's long-established confectionery shop "Uya".
Designed by Katsuya Yasuoka, the Japanese-Western eclectic architecture and quaint garden are impressive.
In 12, the main building, tea room, and sitting area became a tangible cultural property designated by the city, and in 18, the building part was donated to the city.
In 23, the garden was registered as a nationally registered monument (scenic spot), and in the first year of Reiwa, the main building was designated as a national important cultural property (building) (tea room and sitting area are designated).
Admission is possible on days other than the first and third Wednesdays and the year-end and New Year holidays, which are closed days, and guides are provided throughout the facility every Saturday and Sunday (available only for admission fees).
