Open-Air Museum of Old Japanese Farm Houses (3)

11. This is a farmer’s house, built in about the mid-18th century, in a deep-snow district (the snow lay 2 meters or more) in Japan. The house has a structure peculiar to places where much snow falls, in which the entrance protrudes outward of the house and the walls are made of thatch. The wall thickness was made thin in summer and thick in winter by controlling the amount of the thatch.
