the Andohs’ house

hs_andoIt has been told that the ancestor of the Andoh family was Yoshiyuki Obi. He was one of the retainers of the strongest warlord Takeda during 1500s when we had civil war all over in Japan.
He moved to Takahatake area and changed his family name to Andoh after his maternal grandfather. Later on, he moved to Nishi Nango area and settled there. Andoh’s house was built about 300 years ago, yet you can see Nagaya-mon ( a gate of a row house ), Omoya ( main house ) and Chashitsu ( tea ceremony room ) as they were in those days.
