The old Inaba house, which is about a 10 minute-walk from Ome Station on the JR Ome Line, was used by the town leader in Ome-juku.
A town leader was a town official in the Edo period, and the Inaba family was in charge of the Ome-juku as the chief.
The main building, which was said to have been built in the latter half of the Edo period, was built in the style called “Misegura”. “Misegura” which doubles as a residence and shop was a house built with the walls covered in mud, and it seems that you can see the former appearance of the Inaba family, who was also one of Ome’s leading merchants.
The old Inaba house was donated to Ome City by the owner in 1979 and was designated as a tangible folk cultural property in Tokyo in March 1981.
