Kazama Family Former Residence Main Gate

The front gate facing the southern road of the Kazama Family Residence.
Built in the Yakuimon style with a side door to the right, these gates are a remnant of Tsuruoka’s samurai house history that famously survived the 1894 Sakata earthquake and helped guard the house to one of the former executives of the Shonai Clan.
