直哉志賀旧居 - Naoya Shiga's Former House
Born in Miyagi Prefecture, he lived on the mountainside of Mt. Senkoji for two years, from 1912 to 1914. In 1922, he began his greatest work, “Journey On A Dark Night,” which was completed in 1937. He described his house in “Journey On A Dark Night”, saying that it was "a modest thing, the last of three terraced houses with a small room and a smaller kitchen." The temporary residence in which he lived while in Onomichi is still in existence today.
