A mid-Edo period merchant house with a characteristic farmhouse style.
There are eight houses designated as Important Cultural Properties in Imai-cho, and this is the only one that is open to the public without being used as a residence.
It was a building in the middle of the 18th century, and during the Edo period, it used to run a hardware dealer under the name of “Yonechu”.
Unlike other houses, it has a wide soil floor and a farmhouse-like structure with smoke returns.
There are 5 rooms, one less than the others, and they have a simple appearance without any decoration.
In the backyard at the back of the main building, there is a magnificent Kuramae and a Sukiya-style Kuramae tatami room in front of it.
The Kuramae Zashiki is a room in front of the door of the brewery, and it seems that the retreat also served as the brewery’s turn.
I introduced it briefly, but when you actually come to the site, you can experience the history and tradition more concretely with the locals.
We look forward to hearing from you in Japan！
