Gangoji-machi, Koushi-no-Ie (元興寺町 格子の家)

Koushi no Ie (格子の家)


Naramachi Koshi-no-Ie |Lattice House (格子の家)

This is an accurate replica of a traditional Naramachi machiya townhouse.
You can visit to see how people lived in town in the Edo era.
Naramachi Koshi-no-Ie is run by the local council and it is free to visit. In typical Naramachi style, the house is narrow and deep, because local land taxes used to be calculated by the width of the house in Edo era.
Unfortunately, there is little information in English inside the house, but the rooms and garden are pleasant.
