Travel Guide - Mitsuya Village (Wakana family's Storehouse)

InformationInformation

Mitsuya is famous for their characteristic storehouses built in the Meiji (1868 – 1912) and Taisho (1912 – 1926) Periods. These brick storehouses with an arched window and a balcony-like entrance are said to have been built under the direction of German engineers, and the atmosphere of the storehouses is rather "modern" as compared with those of other traditional Kura in Kitakata. These storehouses are privately-owned, and only Wakana family's storehouses, built in 1917, are open to the public.
