Kusakabe Folk Museum
National Important Cultural Treasure
This was constructed in Meiji 12 (1879). These eaves are low, deep and dignified, seemly of a private house of deep in the snow country. Built to be solid, with overlapping eaves, this house is the first old merchant’s house designated as a National Important Cultural Treasure, along with the adjoining Yoshijima House. One could say that with the splendidly put together beam construction and the beauty of open space revealed by a large earthen floor, it has the largest concentration of folk buildings.
