Have you ever seen the house with the thatched roof?
The thatched is a kind of Japanese pampas grass, and the thatched roof that is a
primitive constructor used the plant.
This style of housing is seen all over the world like UK and Germany.
Also in Japan, most houses were with a thatched roof.
But because of changes of the housing situation by modernization and the population
concentration in urban areas, thatched roofs are rapidly reduced.
On the other hand, some people want to save and remain the house with the thatched roof,
and they try to do it.
In Yasato areas in Ishioka city, where is located in the south part of Ibaraki Prefecture,
there are 80 houses with the thatched roof under Mt. Tsukubazan.
These houses with the garden and the gate are succeed with great cautions.
These have supported the life of people who have lived there in the long history
by including the characteristic of Yasato area.
We can be calmed to see the view of the garden and the house with the thatched roof.
Houses with the thatched roof in Yasato area hold guided tours once or twice in a year.
Speaking of the thatched roof and the Japanese traditional house, of course the inside is
the tatami floored Japanese room.
Also the tatami is reduced little by little with changes of the housing situation,
but it’s the traditional culture that has been with the life of Japanese people since old times.
