    From the tatami room, you can enjoy a wonderful view of Tomonoura, where Sensuijima and Bentenjima float in the calm Seto Inland Sea.

    During the Edo period, Taichoro was used as a guest house for the Joeson Envoy. It was also a place of exchange with Japanese Chinese scholars and calligraphers.

    In 1711, the Joseon Diplomat (Li Bangyan) praised the view of this room as “the most beautiful scenic spot east of Joseon.”
