The Elegant Villa built in 1863

seisonkaku_01.jpg

The 13th Lord Maeda built this elegant villa in 1863 as a secret retreat for his mother. The first thing you’ll notice is the particular style of Japanese residential architecture, Shoin-Zukuri, on the first floor. The sculptured fanlight with birds and flowers in the Ekkenno-Ma (audience room) will take your breath away. Traveling up the stairs, you’ll be inspired by the Sukiya-Zukuri style on the second floor. In addition to the purple walls, the ultramarine ceiling, and the decorated Tokonoma alcove pillar, rare antique ornaments adorn the rooms. Although a part of the garden, it requires a separate admission fee. Still, you owe it to yourself to experience the mixture of historical designs during your time here!
