Casa Miyama is a 110 year-old thatched roof country home in a small hamlet in Miyama, Kyoto, recreated by a pair of photographers. Currently, the thatched roof is covered with tiling, but if you climb up to the attic, you can still see the building's wonderful thatching. While preserving the old home's original structure, the traditional fittings within have been restored by hand and reused. The veranda overlooking the garden, and Japanese-style rooms have also been preserved, but update to fit modern lifestyles. Visitors are invited to enjoy a Japanese interior that harmonizes perfectly with the accents of Spanish and Scandinavian furniture within.
