Suzu-no-Ya （Former Residence of Motoori Norinaga）
The scholar of ancient Japanese literature and culture Motoori Norinaga lived in this house for about 60 years. Later it was moved to Matsusaka Castle Ruins. His study on the second floor is called “Suzu-no-Ya”.
Yasujiro wrote in his diary in 1918, “During the spring vacation, I go to the park with my friends every day and play on the lawn of Suzu-no-Ya.”
He also wrote when he was in a dormitory, “I saw the ruins of Mr. Motoori on Sunday. Including the park, this area must have been his playground as well as the place for learning.”
