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.
