Mitsukuni Tokugawa (1628-1700), the second Lord of the Mito Domain, spent his retired life at this modest one-story residence. The house features a thatched roof with a circular window in Mitsukuni’s study, offering views of the garden landscapes and pond. In fact, the pond is designed in the shape of the Chinese character for "heart." Mitsukuni supervised the compilation of "The Great History of Japan" (Dai Nihon-shi) during his time here.
