When the Kaminoyama Castle (Tsukioka Castle) was built in 1535, samurai residences were built in the western and northern parts of it.
The four remaining bukeyashiki, or samurai residences, of the Morimoto family, Miwa family, Yamada family, and former Sokabe family have a thatched roof, are hook-shaped and have a traditional samurai house building style with a separate front gate and entrance.
The interiors and exteriors of all four bukeyashiki were barely renovated, making them give a stronger feel of the past.
* The four buildings are designated as tangible cultural properties of the city
