About Okumura Residence

1808年に建てられた奥村家の屋敷は母屋・土蔵・東門・奉公人部屋・西座敷・寝床(藍製造場)など13棟の建造物からなり、三棟の寝床や贅を尽くした西座敷は、当時の繁栄ぶりを今に伝えています。
1987年(昭和62年)に11代当主奥村武夫氏から藍住町に寄附され、現在は観光施設「藍の館」として一般公開されています。2019年には「奥村家住宅」として13棟が徳島県指定有形文化財(建造物)、そのうち主屋・住宅蔵が国登録有形文化財として登録されました。

Built-in 1808, Okumura Residence consists of 13 structures from the main building, storehouse, eastern gate, servant quarters, western tatami rooms, and dye storage building (for the indigo workshop). The three dye storage buildings and luxurious western tatami rooms show how prosperous the company was at the time. In 1987, the 11th generation master of the estate, Takeo Okumura, donated to the city of Aizumi-cho. It is currently open to the public as "Ai no Yakata," a tourist attraction. In 2019, the 13 buildings of the Okumura family Residence were designated tangible cultural properties (buildings) of Tokushima Prefecture, and the main building and housing warehouse were also registered as national tangible cultural properties.
