Kyu Miyazaki Family Residence 旧宮崎家住宅

1-684 Komaki-cho, Ome City, Tokyo

Wander around a 200 year-old thatched farmhouse

The history of the Former Miyazaki Family Residence is believed to date back to the beginning of the 19th century. The house was originally located in the Nariki area of Ome, 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 Former 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.
