    Introduction
    Japanese-style House in Sinheung-dong was designated as Registered Cultural Heritage No. 183 in 2005. The area of Sinheung-dong, where the Hirotsu House is located, was a residential area for the wealthy class during the Japanese occupation period. The house is named after Hirotsu, the man who built the house.

    Several Korean movies and dramas such as "The General’s Son (1990)," Fighter in the Wind (2004)," and "Tazza: The High Rollers (2006)" were filmed in this house. The house is a typical Japanese two-story timber house, keeping the original forms of its roof, outer walls, inside area and the Japanese-style garden which has significant meaning in regards to the architecture history.
