If you want to experience the prosperity of the Edo period and look at the wealthy families in the Tottori area, then the Ishitani family residence is not to be missed. Located in Chizu-cho, Hachizu-gun, Tottori Prefecture, Ishitani’s residence was one of the largest buildings in Chizu-ju, the largest residence of the Tottori clan in the Edo period. The owner of the house, who is mainly engaged in the timber business, is a well-known timber merchant in the country. His own house naturally makes the best use of it, using a large amount of precious and luxurious wood. The roof beams and pillars of the hall are extremely rare whole pieces. . It is also more elegant and quiet because of the use of large amounts of wood and Japanese gardens. The residence covers an area of about 10,000 square meters, with 40 rooms and 7 warehouses centered on a large pond spring retreat-style Japanese garden. After the renovation by the patriarch Ishitani Denshiro during the Meiji and Taisho periods, it became a masterpiece of modern Japanese architecture. Nowadays, a small part of Ishigu's residence is reserved for their descendants, and most of them have been used as museums for state management.
