The Shida Residence in Kanbara

Visit a historic merchant's home in Shizuoka

The Shida Residence is a former merchant's home and trading house in Kanbara-juku, one of the original 53 post towns of the old Tokaido Highway. Originally producers of soy sauce and miso, the home is now a museum that is open to the public. There are many interesting antiques and artifacts, but there are no English explanations and only Japanese is spoken by the staff. It is best to bring someone who can translate. The admission fee is 300 yen.
