    Former Residence of Lord Hotta

The Former Residence of Lord Hotta was the residence of Hotta Masatomo, the last lord of the Sakura Domain. The history of the Sakura Domain from the time of Doi Toshikatsu extended for some 260 years, and for 144 of those years, it was ruled by the Hotta clan. The clan’s kokudaka (value of the clan’s land) was 110,000 koku. The Hotta clan was the largest clan in what is now Chiba Prefecture.
This residence was built in 1890, and retains many of its original features, including the fusuma sliding doors, tenbukuro overhead closets, and jibukuro low cupboards.
Its seven wings – entrance wing, living room, study, parlor, bathroom, gatekeeper’s lodge, and storehouse – have been designated as National Important Cultural Properties.
The residence’s garden has also been designated as a national place of scenic beauty and is known affectionately as "Sakura Garden."
