Former Yamaya Residence

The Yamaya family earned their money through Salmon fishing, and only began farming in the 1910’s. This is a main house, and alongside it there is a big barn which doubles as stables. This is a common living arrangement in this farming region. The attached structures are two rice storehouses, one was made of wood in 1911 the other was in of stone in 1938, which shows that Yamaya family were quite the farmers.
