Koubun-tei house

The house was built by the ninth Lord of Mito, Nariaki Tokugawa, in 1842.
The beautiful screens in each room were painted with trees and flowers
from the gardens around the house.
This is the peach room.

This is the Azalea Room

This colorful room we don't know the name for.

This room shows how the screens can be opened to allow ventilation. It has a walkway all around the outside of the house.
