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




“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.

Yanai-City, Yamaguchi-Prefecture, Japan.
