USUKI VENUE is a party planning initiative for experiencing Usuki’s history and gastronomy.
It uses the elegant and prestigious residence and Japanese garden of the Inaba samurai family (feudal lords of the Usuki Domain until the 19th-century Meiji Restoration) as a backdrop.

Facilities Available for Use

The Inaba-Family Villa

(nationally registered tangible cultural property)

Inaba Sadamichi, the first-generation head of the Inaba family, was transferred from Gujo-Hachiman in Mino Province (present-day Gifu Prefecture) to Usuki Castle in 1600 as a reward for his military service in the Battle of Sekigahara.
The Inaba Family Villa was built in 1902 as a residence for the Inaba family, the lords of the former Usuki Domain, who relocated to Tokyo after Japan’s feudal system was abolished. Although the residence was built in the modern era, the building itself retains the style of a samurai residence.
