Anma Historical Museum and Samurai House

Anma Historical Museum and Samurai House is a samurai residence that was built after the first year of Tenpo (1830). It was completely renovated from October 1994 to March 1995 and is now open to the public as a historical museum.

Overview of the Anma family

From its construction after the first year of Tenpo (1830) the building was used as a samurai residence by the Anma family for generations. Around the 8th year of Tempo (1838) the head of the family had an annual income of “12 koku and 3 people” (Prosperity level was evaluated in terms of amounts of rice. One koku is equivalent to one person’s rice consumption in a year. One ‘person’ is equivalent to 5 bales of rice.) The building is an L-shaped, gabled, thatch house with a frontage of 13 m and a depth of 15 m. It is well preserved and became a Designated Cultural Property of Sasayama City on March 23, 1994.
