Yoshijima Heritage House (吉島家住宅)

4.0

Historical Monument

This old kominka house was the residence of the Yoshijima sake brewing family for generations. It has been designated a nationally Important Cultural Property. A large ball of cedar twigs hangs from the eaves above the entrance, and a noren curtain at the door has the two stripes of the family crest. The inner hall and entrance hall have a high vaulted ceiling, and the main pillar and other woodwork displays splendid craftsmanship. The interior gives you a real feel of its long history, especially in the drawing room where Toko Shinoda's work is on display.

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
