From the 17th century to the late 19th century, the samurai ruled Japan, and cultural and artistic development flourished. During this time, Yakage prospered as a post town for samurai from all over Japan on their way to modern-day Tokyo. The luxurious residence where high-ranking samurai stayed still stand today. A large portion of the Ishii and Takakusa residences, both Important Cultural Properties of Japan, are open to the public. Visitors are able to see many impressive home furnishings and articles with high cultural value. English-speaking guides also reside at the honjin (old inn for government officials) and are available for assistance.
