Guest room (main room) and Gojinoma

The adjoining rooms contain a combined total of 40 tatami mats. Each room is discreetly separated by transom windows (osa-ranma) and sliding paper doors (fusuma). The guest room, the main room in the back, adopts the so-called Shoin-zukuri design, a traditional style of Japanese residential architecture that features a large alcove (tokonoma), a torii-shaped set of staggered shelves, and a built-in table for reading (tsuke-shoin) with a translucent paper screen used to emit light (akari-shoji). All of these features were designed to demonstrate to the viewer the majesty of the Maeda, a powerful daimyo family of the Edo period.
