THE OLD SITE OF Mr. KURANDO TERASHIMA’S HOUSE

Kurando Terashima’s House

According to a historical document, Kurando Terashima's grandfather, Masatsugu Gorobee, was bestowed with the land upon which the house was built in 1777, and it is believed that the house was built in the middle of the latter half of the 18th century. During the Edo period, it had a long entrance gate which faced a narrow southern road, but it was destroyed since then. Furthermore, a part of the house has been reconstructed on a smaller-scale, however, the remaining parts of the house, the storehouse, and the earthen walls convey the original feel of a middle-class retainer's residence. It and the adjacent garden were designated as municipal historic sites in 1974, and are preserved today as such. On the first floor, there is a 13.5 tatami Japanese-style room, a 5 tatami tea room, a 4 tatami room where Kurando invited Gyokudō Urakami to play the koto, as well as many others. On the second floor, there is an 8 tatami room where Kurando painted, called “Haku-un Shinsho." The house's garden's style was chisen kaiyuu shiki, its focus being a large pond and a three-layer nine wheel pagoda that Kurando had made. The pond actually was not filled with water, and in connection with this, Kurando named his library kensentei, meaning “place of dry spring." Moreover, a wooden board upon which Gyokudō Urakami wrote the Chinese characters kensen still remains today. The garden's blooming Dodan tsutsuji(a kind of azalea) in the spring, and autumn foliage are particularly spectacular.
