Homma Museum’s main house was built in 1813 as a vacation villa by Koto, the head of the Homma family at the time. The surrounding gardens were designed as a place to relax and enjoy nature.
Now, a museum of local Shonai art stands next to the gardens, and the main house has been converted into a museum, gift shop and tea room, from which one can sit and look out over the gardens.
Hannah lives in Sydney and spends most of her time dreaming of being somewhere else. She loves karaoke, hates making plans in advance, and will probably never be able to read a map.
