Kiragawa Historic Streets

Traditional Streets/Houses
Kiragawa-cho, Muroto City is a neighborhood that has retained its Meiji era townscape. Lined with merchant houses, storehouses, and other period buildings, it was the first district in Kochi Prefecture to be designated as a National Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings. The district is notable for its plaster walls, “mizukiri” drainage tiles, and its “ishiguro,” stone masonry outer walls built to protect homes from typhoons.

Review

  • Interesting little town with houses full of character
    5.0 Reviewed:2017.06.27
    In comparison with other old towns, Kiragawa is a small village. Nonetheless, there is a certain atmosphere here which we liked very much. We were there on a quiet morning. It was very peaceful...
  • 伝統的建造物群保存地区

    高知市から室戸岬に向かう途中に伝統的建造物群保存地区がひっそりとある。美しい四国漆喰の壁を守るために壁面に多重の屋根を配している。その伝統を守りながら現在も使い続けているところに価値がある。どの地方でもそうだが、過疎化に抗いながらの保存は並大抵の努力が必要である。
  • 古い街並みが残っています

    室戸市吉良川町伝統的建造物群保存地区として文化庁から指定されている街並みが有ります。ただ訪問してみると現代的な建物と混在しているという言い方の方が、正しいかもしれませんね。30分も有れば巡ることが出来ます。
