Kyu Asakura House (旧朝倉家住宅) was commissioned in 1919 by Asakura Torajiro, a former chairman of the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly. This designated Important Cultural Property is one of the best examples of the architecture of the Taisho period (1912-1926). The Japanese garden with its stone lanterns and landscaped rocks is also delightful. A highly recommended detour.
