Miyama’s thatched village

The Miyama area is well known for its farmhouses that still use traditional thatched roofs. Kita is an area with a particularly large number of such houses, all positioned together in a village. The thatched roof homes and the rustic landscape of the surrounding countryside make for some particularly relaxing scenery.
On December 8, 1993, the Kita area was designated a Preservation District for Groups of Historic Buildings.
