Kurando was a middle-class samurai of the Maeda family. It is said that this house was constructed in the latter half of the 18th century. The existing mansion, storehouse, and mud wall tell the actual condition of the middle-class samurai residence. Dodan tsutsuji (a kind of azalea), which blooms from the end of April until early in May and the autumn leaves are the highlights of the garden. Kurando was a painter as well, and his works are exhibited in the house.
