The Main Drawing Room

The Main Drawing Room (Omote shoin) looks towards the garden. It is very unique, for the railing in the veranda and a detached room in the southwest show the adoption of shinden zukuri (mansion architecture of aristocrats) in the Heian period. In the east side of the Main Drawing room, there is a building with a thatched roof, called Junjokan.
