Hirakawa Family Housing (National Treasure)
The residential farmhouse, located near the borders of Oita Prefecture in Ukiha, was built in the mid-Edo period and the Tanigawa River, a tributary of Chikugo River, flows through the back of the house. The main building is U-shaped in plan and was constructed in a style commonly known as kudo-zukuri because it resembles a kudo (Japanese wood or charcoal fuelled cook stove). In the barn, there is a bathroom where its former occupants shower using tubs and buckets instead of in a bathtub, offering a glimpse into their simple and reasonable lifestyle. These buildings are the first residential house in Fukuoka to be designated as a National Treasure.
