Naramachi Koshino Ie, Nara
(4.2/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
See how medieval merchants lived at Naramachi Koshino Ie, a traditional wooden townhouse open to the public. The exterior of this private home consist of simple wooden latticework, through which residents peaked out without being seen by outsiders. Take a guided tour to see the interior, which features traditional tatami floors and the hako kaidan--box staircase used to preserve space. The home's kitchen displays a traditional Japanese kamado stove and utensils used in formal and casual dining. Feel the serene ambiance in the miniature inner garden, or wear a traditional kimono and play the part of a resident merchant.

  • In the old quarter of Naramachi with its traditional wooden houses, this is the only home that can be visited. You will find the usual structure common to the majority of similar homes. No opulence, nothing to do with the residences-by Takayama. There will be a very nice lady to greet you. Free admission, open from 9 to 17. The neighborhood is worth stopping for dinner if you will stop at Nara.

  • If the community was surprised many similar lattice House. This can actually go in. And extends to the back, but there was lot of ingenuity. I would just love to live.
