Former Toson Shimazaki Residence
A 5 minute walk along the Tokaido Line from Oiso Station. Also known as Machiya-en (traditional townhouse), the former residence of Tōson was a three-roomed single story traditional house, with cedar bark used for the outer walls, and Taisho glass (rare nowadays) for the sliding doors. There is also a small garden with a simple Kabuki-mon (gate with a crossbar) surrounded by a bamboo fence.
