The SpaceIn the historical town of HidaFurukawa, where you can find narrow streets aligned by Machiya townhouses with significant white walls and lattice, this sukiya-style house stands out from the others to add unique flavor to in the Jokamachi district (castle town).

Blending with the old townscape of Hidafurukawa where traditional townhouses stand, this sukiyazukuri house is outstandingly showing a presence. The wooden house built about 40 years ago might not be an historical folk house. However, the structure built by sheer persistence of "Hida no Takumi" is worth seeing.

The NeighborhoodSatoyama (里山?) is a Japanese term applied to the border zone or area between mountain foothills and arable flat land. Literally, sato (里) means arable and livable land or home land, and yama (山) means hill or mountain. Satoyama have been developed through centuries of small scale agricultural and forestry use. On the ground that lifestyle in Hida Furukawa was influenced from Kyoto, this town is not only rich in nature(mountains, river, snow, animal etc) but also rich in culture (architecture, design, creation, food, festival etc).
