The house said to be the model for modern sericulture farms

This is the old residence and farmhouse of Yahei Tajima who perfected the modern sericulture technique called "Seiryo-iku", which focuses on ventilation. This is the first warmhouse for Seiryo-iku and the main characteristic of this two-story house is the "Yagura", window for ventilation on the roof.
This facility, with Tomioka Silk Mill, was registered as the world heritage.
