Seisonkaku Villa Reviews
兼六園を歩いているとき、みかけて立ち寄りました。前田家奥方の隠居用の邸宅です。兼六園とは別料金だったので、外だけ見学しましたが、趣のある立派な御殿でした。 more »When I was walking in Kenrokuen, I stopped by to see it. It is a residence for the retreat of the Maeda family interior. Because it was a separate fee from Kenrokuen, I visited only the outside, but it was a splendid palace with a quaint.
昔の高級邸宅としての和風建築としてすばらしいものでした。1階の天井は木造住宅としてはとても高い上、柱の少ない大空間が構成され、障子の腰板部分の絵や天井のデザインに品の良い高級さがありました。2階はラピスラズリが使われた群青の壁や、紫色、緑、赤色の壁など、塗料が興味深かったです。皇室に関する展示と共に、見学すべき場所だと思いました。 more »It was wonderful as a Japanese style architecture as an old luxury mansion. The ceiling on the first floor is very high as a wooden house, and a large space with few pillars is composed, and there was a good luxury in the picture of the waist plate part of the shoji and the design of the ceiling. On the second floor, paint was interesting, such as the ultramarine wall where Lapis Lazuli was used, and the purple, green, and red walls. I thought that it was a place to visit along with the exhibition about the Imperial family.
The house has some beautiful details. There were two we almost missed. The turtle’s painted on the wainscoting are faded. We are glad we asked where they were. Second, in the raised room where she received visitors, lean over and check out the ceiling. It has beautiful wood panels. You’re going to miss it if you just look at the room and it’s contents. They have seasonal displays. We saw the dolls. We were told grandparents gave dolls to celebrate the birth of little girls. The dolls were handed down over the generations. I wish we saw some of the wardrobe items, dolls just aren’t my thing. It is also interesting to compare this house to the Nomura samurai house a short distance away. I recommend seeing these two back to back. You’ll be amazed at the difference in aristocracy and samurai.
This is not to be missed in Kenrokuen, even though it requires 700 yen as the admission. The two floor building is a canonical example of Traditional Japanese residence of noble families. Unfortunately taking photos is not allowed inside. It is really beautiful.
