In 1918, a wealthy merchant in Niigata, Saito Kijuro (IV), built a beautiful summer villa. The villa cost a huge amount of money and three years to complete. The villa itself was carefully and spaciously planned for the viewing of its superb Japanese garden and to avoid the summer heat. The villa is just next to the famous Japanese restaurant Ikinari-ya.
