@Lord Matsudaira Fumai, Tea master and daimyo of Izumo province, often frequented this mountain retreat belonging to the Arisawa family to seek release from daily worries. In 1792,the teahouse Kanden-an, bearing the name of the villa to which it belongs, was built according to Lord Fumai's specifications. One of the most prominent teahouses in Japan, this designated Important Cultural Property is famous for its compactness, its thick thatch roof, and its use of shadow, particularly when compared with the other teahouse on the grounds, the bright, open Kogetsu-tei, which was built by Lord Fumai's brother for the tea ceremony and moon viewing.
