Every year, the inn I visit has a thatched-roof house.
This is an inn in Saitama prefecture.
The day I stayed was just changing the roof, so I visited it.
It was really beautifully finished, and my husband welcomed me with a smile.
The material of the roof is wheat, and the length of one roof is about 60 cm.
This is a very difficult task because it is arranged in a beautiful bundle on the roof.
Even if the wheat is weak one by one, when it is made into a beautiful bundle like this, it becomes a beautiful and strong roof, so the skill of Japanese craftsmen is very wonderful.
There are almost no roof craftsmen now, but the owner of the inn is doing the maintenance himself, so I think you can see this beautiful roof for a while.
