A MERCHANT’S HOME
Yoshijima Heritage House| 吉島家住宅

The Yoshijima Heritage House, a nationally designated Important Cultural Property, was built in 1907 by renowned traditional carpenter Isaburo Nishida as a house and shop for a sake merchant. There are many architectural elements worth noting: the large central pillar around which beams and pillars are structured to create a lofty foyer, the high windows that allow dramatic presence of light and shadow, and the rich tones of wood from varied polishing and use.
