Terashima Kurando House 寺島蔵人邸

Home of a middle-ranked samurai with a garden

The well-preserved historical home of Maeda-family retainer Terashima Kurando (1777–1837) provides a glimpse into how middle-ranking samurai families of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Kanazawa lived.

The home is tucked into a quiet backstreet and surrounded by earthen walls. In spring, azaleas bloom in the garden. In autumn, it is a picturesque setting for colorful foliage.

The house contains family heirlooms such as porcelain and calligraphy. Terashima’s hobby was painting, and some of his art is also on display.
