Takayama 2

11 October
We visited the Kusakabe Mingei-kan, the house of a wealthy merchant family (re-built 1879), with its two stories of Japanese cypress, private living quarters, heavy roof beams and wooden roof tiles, kitchen, laundry and servants quarters, tatami floors,sliding screen doors and courtyard gardens. Beautifully preserved, the Kusakabe house offers exceptional insight into the way people were living and working in this lovely civilian town. Next, the Hida Folk Village.
