  • This house is worth a visit to see how the well-to-do Japanese lived compared to the thatched roofed homes in Shirakawa. This house belonged to a sake brewer. A small fee is required for entry and.....  more »

  • I almost didn't go in as there's no signage in front to show it's even opened but after I plucked up enough courage to slide the four open I saw there was a very, nice lady on the other side who took my 500Yen and gave me a guide. Take your shoes off, Tatami rugs everywhere + it's a home, and you can freely walk around this beautiful home. You'll see all in less than an hour so it's the perfect place to see if it's raining outside and it is quieter too. Worth a visit.
  • Traditional Japanese house built in the early 20th century. The family was a sake brewer so the house was used for both business and family. This house shows good example of tradition carpentry and the roof structure at the entrance is highly praised for a perfect feminine blend between the "hard" straight lines of the structure with the "warm" sunlight sheds from the big window above. This is a really "open" exhibit where visitors can sit, touch and feel almost any part of the house. Most of the daily use objects and decorative items are being moved and exhibit in the folk museum. Tips: the restaurant Kyoya in the next street serves superb meals including prime Hide beef and live river fish. It makes a good combo to visit both together. 😁👍
