Teranishi-ke Abeno Nagaya (The Teranishi Family’s Abeno Townhouses)
These classic townhouses are the only nagaya-style residences in all of Japan registered as a National Tangible Cultural Property. Held in high regard for the use of the underlying historical structure in a way that harmonizes with the surrounding townscape, the townhouses won the Mayor’s Choice Award in the 26th Osaka Machinami Awards.
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.
