History of town and Ikuha

Yoshiimachi of Ukiha City developed as a post town connecting major cities Kurume and Hita. Since 17C, the town flourished in commerce through manufacturing based on rich agricultural production. The whole town was redesigned after a major fire in 1869 from thatched roof houses to tiled roof and white plastered walls to be fireproof, which still consist the townscape of today. Built as a house/shop of a wealthy merchants Ishida family more than 100 years ago.

In 1996(Heisei 8) the external area of the building was extensively renovated returning it to its original form further to its recognition by the National Preservation District of Historical Buildings. The internal features of the design such as the beams (Hari), Lintel(Kamoi) and wall are in the same condition as when the building was originally constructed enabling you to experience the mood and atmosphere of buildings from the Meiji era.
