1000: Kurashiki

Position map

These distinctive town houses are a reminder of the burgeoning of a new merchant class in the late Edo era (late 18th and 19th centuries). This area of the city of Kurashiki has been designated an architectural preservation area since 1979. If you've read my photo essay on walls, you might be interested to note the unusual arrangement of the embankment here, with courses of horizontally laid stones.
