Katsuragawa Thatched Roof House
The thatched roof (kayabuki) came to fruition via the the desire for a design that would easily endure all four seasons.
With the amount of thatched roof houses declining year over year, the ones remaining today have become increasingly scarce over time.
Currently, this Katsuragawa located thatched roof house is being preserved with the cooperation of the local community, and is publicly available and on display alongside “mingu” (everyday articles which have come to be regarded as folk art).
