Samurai House

I visited an old house that used to be of a samurai family in Kanazawa. The house was established by Nomura Denbei who served the local lord, Maeda Toshiie in late 16th century. The house is in the area I visited last year. The family was allowed to occupy this house for 10 generations until the 1871.

Here's the actual armor Nomura Denbei wore when he served in a war in 1582.

Tokonoma was simple, yet very elegant and nice.

Here's Butsudan where the family worshipped their ancestors.

This map shows the territorial situation in Japan in 1586. At the time, the ruler of Japan wasToyotomi Hideyoshi.
