    Neesima’s Residence

    A reminder of Yae Neesima’s modern lifestyle in a bygone era

    This old house has Japanese and western influences. Jo Neesima who was the founder of Doshisha University, lived together with his wife, Yae, in this house. Jo’s desk still remains in the same room and this house has been specially exhibited as it gained a lot of attention from the NHK drama series Taiga in 2013. In the drama, Yae is portrayed as a heroine.
