Tsuwano’s built heritage: Tawara hardware store

The building was erected in the middle of Meiji period (1868-1912) during which it was operated as a hardware store. From the Taisho period (1912-1926) it started to sell agriculture related tools and seeds.

The building is a two storey wooden structure, with metal shingle roofed eaves in the front and a wide shop front. The shop has earthen floor with a small corridor leading to the back area with a garden and living space. A tatami room is located on the left of the corridor.

The plank door in front is divided into 3 segments from top to bottom. Lifting up one by one it is stored in a box attached to the lintel.

⑦俵種苗店

明治中期に建てられ、明治期は金物屋として、大正期以後は農機具販売および種苗店を営んでいたという。

建物は木造瓦葺二階建で、正面に鉄板葺の庇を設け開口部を広く取っている。店舗部は土間でタタキを残し、通り庭に沿って左手に座敷を配し、奥には庭と生活空間が広がる。正面の板戸は上下に3段に分かれ、上から順番に引き上げ、差鴨居に取り付けられた枠に収納する旧態を残している。
