Sakamoto Ryoma, one of the revolutionaries of the Meiji Restoration, also enjoyed the Ishinnoyu

It is a historical cultural property which is said to have been used for bathing at the time when the imperial loyalists of Choshu, Satsuma, and Tosa gathered for a secret meeting to overthrowing the Shogunate to restore the Imperial Rule.

IN 1867

Meeting place of the three great nobles of the Restoration, Saigo, Kido, and Okubo

This is the place of the event that changed Japan's history, where Saigo and Okubo of Satsuma clan, Kido and Ito of Choshu clan have come to Yamaguchi to discuss concrete plans on the Satcho Alliance, here at Matsudaya.

This wandering-style Japanese garden
has over 300 years of history.

The wandering-style Japanese garden provides a different sort of enjoyment for every season.
This is an important cultural heritage site,
being the meeting place of Akamatsu, Saigo, Kido and Okubo as written by Ryotaro Shiba.

They are quite friendly and will come closer to you as soon as you feed them.
