Kurando Terashima's House
The former residence of Kurando Terashima – a middle-class samurai belonging to the Maeda clan – the house was constructed in the second half of the 18th century and offers a glimpse into the life and homes of the middle-class during the Edo Period. Kurando Terashimas was an influential official and accomplished painter, who held a prominent position in Kanazwa through his life (1777-1837). Since 1974 his former residence has been open to the public and preserved as an important cultural property. English-language pamphlets are available on-site.
