Shirakabe Avenue

 

Time-honored scenery, back to 100 years ago

 

The Avenue is located in Yoshii-machi, Ukiha-city. 

Shirakabe, literary meaning is white wall. The avenue of houses with white wall were constructed

about 100 years ago.  About 250 houses in the area has been designated as National important

traditional buildings preservation district.

 

In the Edo era (1603-1868), Yoshii flourished as a post town between Kurume and Hita.

In the Meiji era ( from 1868), this area experienced a big fire three times.

 

In order to protect from the fire, people have rebuilt the houses with the fire resistance design

using clay wall painted by white.
