It used to be a wooden storehouse built in Meiji-era, but now it becomes a private office with community space for the local people taking the rest or gathering during the festival after the renovation. It is the base to connect the local people by “opening” the closed space called “Kura”, meaning storehouse. All the materials used for this renovation were from the original wooden storehouse, recycled or reused. Facilities and furnitures requiring high functionality were designed to match with the modern society.
