Thatched Roofed Farmerhouse Model
[scale 1/20; Height about 50cm]

This is the farmhouse scene as the summer turns to fall and the rice has been harvested. This KITAYAMA-type model of a private house in Miyama-Cho, Kyoto, is from the famous village of KAYABUKI. The model may be opened to view the interior.




It depicts the farmers' life at the beginning of Showa 30's (1950's), similar to "Kyo-Machiya". The model displays many items that remind us of the lives of that time past. The interior of the big thatched roof appears as so.
