Mukai Junkichi: Folk Dwelling Tours – Searching for Vernacular Forms

Overview

Throughout Japan, there are distinctive folk dwellings based on vernacular forms that grew out of living in a natural setting. Viewers will enjoy the structural beauty of these houses that are filled with life and shaped by the local environment, including Mukai’s pictures of gassho-zukuri (praying hand-style) houses in the designated World Heritage Site of Shirakawa-go, and kabuto-zukuri (helmet-style) and magariya (bent) houses.
