Rokkaen (former Seiroku Moroto residence) (六華苑(旧諸戸清六邸))

 0594244466  Mie Pref. Kuwanashi Kuwana 663-5

This facility is a 10-minute walk from the city circular bus Tamachi bus stop from the bus terminal at Kuwana Station's East Exit. This important cultural property is made up of a western-style building designed by the British architect Josiah Conder (1852-1920) who also designed the Rokumeikan (Deer Cry Pavilion), and a Japanese-style building with a Japanese-style garden with a path around a central pond. It was designated as a National Important Cultural Property in 1997 as a precious building representing the Meiji (1868-1912) and Taisho (1912-1926) periods. You can enjoy the garden which is famous in Japan for this beauty throughout the year and its charming architecture. In addition to tsukigama (monthly tea ceremony), flower arrangement exhibitions and concerts, it holds courses on the small hand drum for nagauta hayashi music and tea ceremony.

Reviewed:2015/04/11 Building in both Western and Japanese style
Building in blue, with an entrance fee of $300 yen, is in both Western and Japanese style. I enjoyed sitting inside the house, looking at the garden and listening to water flowing.

最近よく映画やドラマのロケとして使われている桑名市を代表する建物です。2018年のNHKドラマ吉岡秀佳さんの金田一耕助『悪魔が来りて笛を吹く』のメインロケ地にもなっていましたね。

子どもはあまり興味がなかったようでした。近くの公園の方が楽しかったようです。

昔の豪商が建てた和洋館。よくテレビや映画のロケに使われています。鹿鳴館を建てた人が設計したとか。桑名市の、イベント、音楽会、雅楽もここでしてます。
Reviewed:2018/06/23 ロケによく使用される洋館
実業家二代目諸戸清六が結婚し新居として建てられた和洋館と池泉回遊式庭園を通年見学できます。洋館はコンドル設計で四階の搭屋が印象的です、洋館館内は2階までが公開でした。洋館に続く和館も見事な木造建築です。本館の北側には 高須藩の御殿の一部を移築した旧高須御殿や見事な茶室もあります。事前予約した無料のボランティアガイドさんに案内してもらい、ゆっくり見学できました。
