Kakunodate Samurai residences

A Bukeyashiki is a residence where samurai used to live. The difference between Kakunodate and other samurai residences in Japan is that people still live in these homes. Some residences are home to descendants of the samurai and their families. Many are protected as cultural properties, and some are open to the public. In spring, varieties of cherry blossoms, such as the weeping cherry blossoms, bloom and it is a beautiful area throughout the entire year with gorgeous greenery, mesmerizing autumn leaves, and a stunning snowy scenery.

Dakigaeri gorge
