Sankyo soko, Sakata

Built in 1893 to store the rice produced in the region, all 11 of the buildings at Sankyo soko remain in use today. Inside two of these structures you can study the history of the area and its relevance to trade and the community. Purchase local products in the shop on site, and walk around the exterior for plenty of rich photo ops of the distinctive historic structure and river.

  • Is a renovated old warehouse, of the local shopping and dining facilities. You can buy align product, wine, sweets to around Yamagata specialties. Flights, bus time to worry while shopping, but has become lined with zelkova trees behind the building. Nice harmony with the buildings, worth a look.

  • Feel the history as a concentration of the Shonai rice is. Can know the history of the Mogami River and Shonai Museum, NHK drama oshin became old will be reminiscent. You can't experience 30 kilos of rice, with very, very superstitious. Old woman is amazed when carrying it and two (60 Kg), were loaded on the ship. Warehouse behind zelkova roadside trees were great.

  •  What was used as a warehouse designed by komezo is now also active warehouse. Ancient atmosphere would be the front, behind a huge Japanese zelkova trees, with brilliant stuff. Is worth a look.
