柳井・白漆喰の眩しいまちなみ / Yanai – the beauty of white mortar

日本・山口県柳井市、古市・金屋地区の白壁の商家の街並みです。

柳井は、岩国藩のお納戸として繁栄し、江戸時代の白漆喰・土蔵作りの商家の家並が約200メートルにわたり続き、国の重要伝統的建物群保存地区に指定されております。

私が訪れた時には雲一つ無い晴天に恵まれ、白漆喰の色と青空とのコントラストが見事でした♪

“Shirakabe”(white mortar) Street ,in Furuichi and Kanaya area, Yanai City, merchant town.

In the Edo period, Yanai? flourished as “Onando (the closet) of Iwakuni Domein”,an important commercial city of the Domein.
The main street, whose length is about 200m,is lined with the marchant houses and stonehouses wit the white stucco exterior walls.
This area is designated as a Preservation District for Groups of Historic Buildings.

The contrast between the white plaster wall and the blue sky is very beautiful, I feel.
