Iga Sukodo Formaer School | School for the Children of Samurai

Sukodo Former School was formerly a school for the children of samurai, especially the Iga, Yamato, and Yamshiro provinces. It served as a school from 1821 when it was founded until 1854 when it was destroyed by an earthquake. The building then was used as a public library from the 1860s for most of the 20th century. Now the building is a national historical site which is a great representation of the Edo period architecture and design. The building consists of tatami mat lecture halls and the kitchen of the building also brings out the historical significance of the place.
