The Former Sekikawa Family Villa

Southern Hokkaido Area Esashi Town

This facility was a villa of the Sekikawa Family, who engaged in various business in central Esashi from the mid-Edo to Meiji periods (the 18th and 19th centuries). Built from the late Edo to the early Meiji periods (the late 19th century), the facility consists of a main house and an earthen warehouse. They were collectively designated as a Tangible Cultural Property of Esashi Town in 1981. Today, the warehouse displays pottery, lacquerware, and other heirlooms that were handed down in the Sekikawa family.
