The history of Kyu Miyazaki Family Residence is believed to date back to the beginning of the 19th century. The house was originally located in the Yukura area in Ome City, and owned by typical farmers. But the house itself is more than ordinary now.
With three rooms—a hall, a room facing the garden, and an inner room—within the residence, the Kyu Miyazaki Family Residence reveals a traditional modest way of life that is perhaps forgotten by modern citizens. The roof type of this residence is called mazebuki or torabuki thatching. It is very thick, and uses a mixture of kaya reeds and cedar bark.
