For us, Japanese old folk houses are very longing homes.
The roof, still beautiful, is thatched and has a porch.
The house is designed so that even first-time visitors can easily enter. Even now, such a house becomes a inn Saitama Prefecture.
It is said that there are no roof craftsmen at present, but the owner of this house seems to be self-taught and learns maintenance.
Efforts to preserve Japan’s wonderful technology are worthy of respect.
