- The prefecture of Chiba has designated the Takanashi family estate "a scenic beauty." The Takanashis were Kamihanawa village governors during the Edo period. Soy sauce has been produced by the Takanashis here since 1661. Of particular interest on the estate is the Mon-nagaya--the oldest extant structure dating to 1766. The kagura-den was built around 1880 while the most recent structure, the "sukiya-style" living quarters, were finished in 1931.
