The buildings from the Edo period 160 years ago are still very well preserved. This is definitely a mansion in the Kojima area at that time. The Nozaki family has been engaged in the development of salt fields and new fields. They have made a fortune. There is a main building in the courtyard, a group of salt warehouses in the north, and a library next to it. It can be seen that this family is also very fond of learning. With culture in that era, you could make a lot of money. The entire structure of the old Nozaki family house is very well preserved and is an important representative of private houses in the late Edo period.
Japan's designated important cultural property is the old Nozaki family residence and it is also the Nozaki family salt industry history museum. In the late Edo period, the Nozaki family opened a large salt farm in Kojima, and since then established a "salt industry kingdom" step by step. In the yard of about 3,000 pings, there are 6 sets of warehouses around the main building where the owner lives. It used to be a salt storage warehouse. Now the tools and related historical materials used to make salt from that era are displayed.
This is the old Nozaki residence in Kojima, just above the jeans street in Kojima. This is the house of Nozaki, a salt producer in Kurashiki, covering an area of 3,000 square meters, of which the building covers an area of 1,000 square meters. It is a typical mansion of a wealthy giant with a Japanese-style dry landscape courtyard, which is very large and beautiful.
