Formerly the “third circle” (sannomaru) of Tsurugaokajo Castle, used as the public residence of the Sakai family, a Shonai feudal clan, it is now open to the public as a museum. Inside are the former Nishitagawa-gun government office, a National Important Cultural Property, as well as multilayered private residences, the former Tsuruoka police station, and other historically important buildings. There is also a rare garden built with shoin-zukuri Japanese architecture. In addition, everyday objects telling the story of life in Shonai and 5,350 artifacts (eight types) of National Important Folklore Cultural Assets are stored and exhibited here.
