|Address||207 Kitsuki, Kitsuki City, Oita Prefecture|
Ohara-tei is the residential building used during the Edo period to house karo top-ranking officials of the Matsudaira Domain. Situated right on the strip of Kitadai Bukeyashiki where many of the high rank samurai resided at the time. Remnants of that time period still exist here today.
Go through the double door Nagaya-mon gate, and you will be greeted with the bold and classic thatched roof building. The 200 year-old Japanese sago palm tree on site as well as the massive entryway to the living quarter tell of the class and the social status this property possesses. Equipped with a large yard with a path around the pond, Ohara-tei is one of the most iconic samurai residences in Kitsuki City.
