Kishina family’s house

Mikuni in Fukui prefecture is a port town that prospered by trade during the Edo era to the early Meiji era.

This is Kishina family’s house who had run a lumber dealer business. 

It’s architectural style was called ‘Kagura date.’

It was built in the Edi era era and was fixed in the Meiji and the Taisho era. 

In those days, houses which were long like this were in arranged in a row.

And these houses opened up directly onto the port. 

It must have been convenient and I thought that was interesting.
