The first Machiya guest house in Imai-cho.
In Imai-cho, which had abundant financial resources, in order to protect public order, it prevented intruders from the outside and prohibited people other than relatives from staying in the town.
Although it will be abolished after the Meiji era, the accommodation facility will not open, and the first inn that was opened in 2007 is Kauntei.
The old house of the kimono shop built in the middle of the 18th century has been renovated, and the beams, pillars, box stairs, kimono chests and other commercial tools of the time have been preserved.
In addition to visiting the townhouses, you can experience the charm of the townhouses of the Edo period by staying overnight.
There is also a unique service that issues an accommodation certificate as a proof of accommodation, in connection with the old practice.
I introduced it briefly, but when you actually come to the site, you can experience the history and tradition more concretely with the locals.
