Funaya at Ine Bay
230 boathouses facing the Sea of Japan stand in a row on the waters of Ine bay. On the first level of these traditional buildings, there are garages for boats, storage rooms, and workrooms people use to get ready for fishing, repair their fishing gears, dry fishes, and store agricultural products. The second level is for the living area and guesthouses. The boathouses started appearing in the middle of the Edo period (1600 - 1868). Ineura fishing village is the first one to be selected as an Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings. The village is well known as filming location for the morning Japanese drama called "Eenyobo" (NHK, 1993).
