The front house facing south was built in the Meiji era with an Western style reception room or "yokan" on the side. The main part of this historical house is the standard "Tanoji" or 4 connected Tatami rooms that you can also find in many kominka. In the Hokuriku region, one of these Tatami rooms is called the "Wakunouchi" which has a double height ceiling showing the hefty wooden beams that support the house during heavy snowfall in winter. As this was a residence of a prestigious family, a grand Tatami room with clear view of the main garden was used to hold dinner parties or other important events. Recent years the rooms on the 2nd floor were rented out to university students.


At the back of the house facing North, there are two Kura storages that were built around the same time as the front house. The rest of the back were built later on (roof over the Kura storages, the rooms on the 2nd floor, etc) in Showa period. There is also a small tea room besides the Kura storages if you wish to hold tea ceremonies. The wood deck in front of the Kura storages faces the mid garden is where the family members used to enjoy time together.

Why KORYOYA houses?

The traditional Japanese houses listed on KORYOYA are all built before 1950 with the traditional construction method.

The traditional method is the result of more than a thousand years of past carpenters passing down their efforts and wisdoms. As no new houses can be built with the traditional construction method under current law, the high craftsmanship is in danger of becoming a dying art.
