Machiya Gallery Yamakichi is a gallery housed within one of the old townhouses, or machiya, which has been designated as one of the nation’s Registered Tangible Cultural Properties. The building still retains the charm of the Edo period with its stylish black tiles and window grills. The gallery mainly handles pieces from local craftsmen and handicrafts made by traditional craftsmen with quite a range on offer such as salted salmon patchwork, and Uetsu shinafu (a kind of woven textile). Inside the building you can see the hearth and living room and also you can see furnishings like the old wooden panels and sliding doors which were fashionable at the time. The nearest station is Murakami Station.

昨年訪ねた町屋めぐりがとても良かったので今年も訪ねました。風情のある暖簾をくぐると、歴史上に出てくる人物のの土人形。そして、三人官女のいない京都の文化の影響を受けた江戸時代のお雛様が飾られていました。ギャラリーの方がとても穏やかに親切に説明してくれました。

城下町がしっかりと保存されております。映画のロケでも出てくるところ。
主に、商人の町として栄えたところ。
趣のある商家、民家を一緒に散策出来ます。

肴町にあり、ここから大町方面へ向かって歩くのに起点となる場所です。訪れた季節はひな祭りの直後でしたが、江戸時代から大切に保存されたひな人形が展示されていました。和紙や綿にくるんで大切に保存しているそうで、きれいなお顔をしたお雛様を楽しむことができました。

          Found along the northwestern coast of Japan, Niigata prefecture is celebrated for its high-quality rice and breathtaking nature, most notably its spectacular mountains, whose white peaks draw in snow sports lovers from far and wide over the winter months.
