The late great silent movie actor Denjiro Okochi was a major star from the 1920's until his death in 1962. His legacy today however is as much related to his films as to his villa in western Kyoto.

There are also stone Buddhas and an observation platform.

Last, there is an open-air museum highlighting the life and film career of Denjiro Okochi. Along with the price of admission, you will receive tickets for green tea and a sweet. At a small outlying Japanese-style building below the main structure, you can depending upon the weather sit inside or outside on low tables draped with red or blue cloth.
