Preserved Residence of the Umeda Family

The Umeda family residence was originally built in Jokyoji-cho in Fukui City. Umeda was a wealthy farmer as well as a leader of urushikaki (lacquer tappers, who set out for the faraway Kanto region to collect lacquer and amassed a fortune). Based on old documents, the residence is believed to have been built during 1830–1847. It has a hip-and-gable and thatched roof construction. In the front half of the residence is the kitchen and earthen floor, while in the back is a closet, omae room, sitting room, and Buddhist altar room. The four rooms in the back are arranged like a square. It is a typical home that was found in the Reihoku region (northern part) of Fukui prefecture.
