Kayabuki no Satoかやぶきの里

Historical Monument

One of the top sightseeing spots of Miyama-cho, this park is filled with old-fashioned thatched roof buildings and homes rarely found today, providing a glimpse into Japan’s past. The northern village was designated an Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings by the national government in 1993. The oldest home here was built in 1796 and 38 of the 50 structures are thatch roofed. Most of the structures are private homes, but there is also a cultural interaction facility and museum dedicated to folk customs. There are also thatched roof guesthouses where visitors can stay.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
