Matsumae Clan Residence

Matsumae Clan Residence

In the feudal government period, Matsumae was so alive with activity that it was said, “Even Edo is not as lively as Matsumae in May.” The Matsumae Clan Residence is a museum containing the reproduction of fourteen buildings, including a warrior’s residence, a herring fishermen’s lodge and a shipping agent’s building. There is also a restaurant offering herring soba noodles and set meals served with sanpeijiru.
