Tsuwano’s built heritage: Furuhashi brewery

It said that the sake brewery was founded in 1878 and the current building was erected in 1921. A wooden 2 storey structure that together with the other shops on the old street have quite high floor heights. A western style wing with stone foundation remains, which gives it a wayou-secchuu style. 

The premises of the sake brewery start at the main street called Honmachi-street and reach all the way back to the other side of the block, to a street called Yorozumachi-street. The 23 ken (72 m) long building has a long white wall facing the side road of Imaichi-street on the north side. This long white plaster wall and the Mt. Aono in the background is one of the scenic views of Tsuwano.

⑪古橋酒造

創業は明治11年(1878)ごろと言われ、店舗は大正10年(1921)ごろの建築。木造瓦葺二階建で、通り沿いの他の店舗に比し、一階・二階共に階高がひときわ目立つ。礎石張りの洋館の一部が現在も残るなど、和洋折衷の面影がある。

敷地は表の本町通りから裏の万町通りまで39間(約72m)あり、北側の今市通りには酒蔵の白壁と板張りの外壁が続き、正面に見える青山とあいまって津和野らしい景観を保っている。
