Outline explanationIn Edo era , products from all over Japan were collected in Osaka which is called ” the Kitchen of the Nation”. Daimyo’s city storehouses of the various clans were built along the Dojima River. This rice granary was originally built along the Dojima River. It is a granary built with the mud walls and hongawara-tiled-roof, and the main entrance is on the gabled side. The roof frame with 6 ken(6feet)brace and 2ken beam, has Japanese hut with curved woods fold alternately. The front entrance door was built with triple doors, one is KannonTobira (double doors opening from the center) which is bordered in quince shape, the second one is soil door and the third one is lattice door. On the upper part of outer wall, there are several small windows with eaves. To talk about the building history, it’s originally a rice granary with a single-story house.
