Yonemura Residence

This family ran a rice dealership until around 1962. Their house can be found on the east side of the noren community. It still features a waterway which was used for agriculture years ago, and turned a mill wheel for the Yonemura family in those days. The people of town call this waterway the "Ide River" and come together to clean it once a year. The family asked for a design which resembled the gear of the mill wheel their ancestors took such good care of. This gear can still be found in their home, in addition to a stone mill and bamboo measuring basket.
