During the Edo period, Abumiya became known nationwide as a shipping agent and rice dealer. Abumiya played an important role in the shipping trade, as well as held top economic and political positions in Sakata. The present building was rebuilt after the big fire that occurred in 1845. Visitors can see what the establishment of a shipping agent looked like in the Edo period.
