    The

    former Chiba family residence is a former residence of the Chiba family that served as an important post for the inn station in Kaita, which flourished as a post town on the early modern Sanyo Road (Saigoku Kaido). The tatami room built in 1774 conveys the remnants of the hospitality space with a sense of unity at the beginning of the building, along with the attached buildings and fountain gardens built at the same time, and in Heisei 3, the shoin became a Hiroshima prefectural important cultural property, and the spring garden was designated as a place of scenic beauty in Hiroshima prefecture.
