Former Hirata Family Residence and Shop平田屋住宅旧店舗
A 15 minute walk from JR Kiryu Station. The area where this building is located was selected as an Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings in 2012. This historic former residence and shop stands on the east side of the central road passing through. The first owner of the shop, Hirata Uhachi, set up his own general store in 1851; thereafter, the store carried dyes and raw silk thread, but the difficulties of acquiring stock during the war forced it to close. The structure is a rare example of Meiji-period townhouse architecture and the primary building and adjoining storehouse were registered as Tangible Cultural Properties in 2006.

Yamanashi prefecture is the proud home of one of Japan’s most celebrated icons: Mount Fuji. Although the mountain straddles both Yamanashi and Shizuoka, the most breathtaking views of Fuji-san can be seen from the Fuji Five Lakes north of the mountain in Yamanashi prefecture. The plethora of outdoor activities in and around the lakes all have the benefit of the country’s highest mountain as their backdrop, and we can assure you that it is an unforgettable sight.
