The Former Residence of the Mukui Family was once located at the Kamino-go Town Hall, but came to its present home in Tsuchimaru following relocation during the construction of the Kansai Shin-kuko Renraku Road. The thatched-roof residence had all its additions removed and was restored to its original layout. Once a private residence, it’s an excellent example of the unique farmhouses of the Sennan area. Laid out in in four chambers with a partially-disconnected dirt-floor kitchen, the house is notable for the presence of an extra beam between the sashikamoi-style lintel and the main ridge beam. In 1993, the residence was registered as a Municipal Cultural Property by Izumisano City.
