Thatched roof village in the snow

January 28, 2017

One of the villages along the old Saba-kaido trading route in Shiga running between Kyoto and the Sea of Japan coast to the north.  Unfortunately a lot of the distinctive traditional kayabuki houses now have their thatches covered by tiles or sheeting as re-thatching them is so incredibly expensive.  Thatched roofs are great for the winter – excellent insulators!

We’ve had loads of snow here over the last few days in Shiga.  Today’s office view.dtj_5770
