Constructed in 1932 before World War II, this nagaya-style row of townhouses is two stories tall and uses irimoya-style hip-and-gable roof construction. Built by temple carpenters, these townhouses have lasted over seven decades and were renovated splendidly: They now add vitality to the local area as restaurants and galleries.
